Great Gatsby Soundtrack Features Jay-Z, Beyonce & More
April 4, 2013


Florence + The Machine
The complete tracklist for the soundtrack to Baz Luhrmann's anticipated version of The Great Gatsby has been revealed. The movie is executive produced by Jay-Z, who also had a hand in the soundtrack. As expected, the soundtrack features Beyonce and Andre 3000 covering Amy Winehouse's "Back To Black," with brand new songs from Florence + The Machine, Lana Del Rey, will.i.am and Nero. Also on the Gatsby soundtrack is Jay-Z's "100$ Bill," while "No Church In The Wild," from Jay's Watch The Throne album with Kanye West, appears in the film itself.

Del Rey's new song, "Young And Beautiful," will be the lead single from The Great Gatsby. The video will debut April 22, with the song's release the next day. Del Rey said, "It was an honor to work with Baz Lurhmann on his amazing adaptation of one of the most extraordinary books ever written. The movie is highly glamorous and exciting; Rick Nowels and I were thrilled to write the song for the film."

"The Great Gatsby is that classic American story of one’s introduction to extravagance, decadence and illusion. It’s ripe for experimentation and ready to be interpreted with a modern twist. The imagination Baz brought to Moulin Rouge! made it a masterpiece, and Romeo + Juliet’'s score wasn’t just in the background; the music became a character. This film’s vision and direction has all the makings of an epic experience," Jay-Z said in a previous statement.

The soundtrack also includes a reworking of Beyonce's "Crazy In Love" done by Bryan Ferry of Roxy Music with Emeli Sandé, and Jack White's cover of "Love Is Blindness" by U2, recorded for an Achtung Baby tribute, which appeared in earlier trailers for the film.

The Great Gatsby soundtrack will be released May 7, with an expanded 17-track deluxe version exclusively at Target, via Interscope.
