Tickets will go on sale Wednesday. The soundtrack will be released on Nov. 12 by Nonesuch Records and includes a previously unreleased recording of Bob Dylan performing his song “Farewell.”

The film, which won the Grand Prix at Cannes, has been set for a Dec. 6 opening by CBS Films in the U.S. The film follows a week in the life of a young folk singer as he navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961.

“Davis” is the Coen Brothers’ fourth collaboration with T Bone Burnett. The trio collaborated on the soundtrack for “O, Brother Where Art Thou?,” which won a Grammy for Album of the Year in 2002.
