The Sundance Film Festival has added Muscle Shoals, a music documentary featuring interviews with artists including Mick Jagger (pictured), Aretha Franklin and Bono, to its 2013 line-up.

The doc, from director Greg ‘Freddy’ Camalier, looks at Rick Hall, who founded FAME Studios in Alabama and gave birth to the ‘Muscle Shoals’ sound. Other musicians featured in the film include Keith Richards, Gregg Allman, Etta James and Alicia Keys.

The Sundance screening will be the film’s world premiere. The addition comes after the fest previously confirmed a 2013 line-up that includes doc premieres from filmmakers including Alex Gibney, Barbara Kopple, Sebastian Junger, Dave Grohl and Lucy Walker.

The feature docs will be complemented by a 15-strong short docs line-up, featuring new work from directors including Albert Maysles, Morgan Spurlock and Alexandra Pelosi.

The 2013 Sundance Film Festival runs from January 17 to 27.
