"Ok I can tell you this. There's a Coen brothers film coming out soon that I was lucky enough to work with Oscar Isaac and Carey Mulligan," Justin revealed to Capital FM Breakfast recently. "And coincidentally I did work with Marcus Mumford on the soundtrack, so I became very good friends with them.
"Marcus and myself we all kind of worked on the music together and I don't know any other world where we would have the opportunity to collaborate like that but it was so much fun," the 'My Love' singer explained. "So not only will that be a great movie, but the music to it will be fantastic.
