‘Great Gatsby’ Soundtrack Features Lana Del Rey, the xx, Florence + the Machine + More
New, original songs from Lana Del Rey, the xx and Florence + the Machine highlight the just-announced complete tracklisting for the forthcoming ‘Great Gatsby’ soundtrack, Pitchfork reports. The previously announced Beyoncé and Andre 3000 cover of Amy Winehouse‘s ‘Back to Black’ will also appear on the disc, as will tunes from Gotye, British electronica trio Nero, downtempo singer Sia and Jack White, who covers U2‘s ‘Love Is Blind.’ The soundtrack, drops May 7 in digital format.
Del Rey reportedly worked closely with ‘Gatsby’ director Baz Luhrmann on her contribution, ‘Young and Beautiful,’ which will be released as the soundtrack’s first single on April 23. As we recently reported, the Beyoncé/André 3000 cover of Winehouse’s ‘Back to Black’ was produced by Jay-Z and offers “a very different take on” the tune, according to a record label insider. Reports that Prince and Lady Gaga are among the other artists contributing to the soundtrack appear to be false (check out the finalized tracklisting below).
The big-screen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s ‘The Great Gatsby’ – starring the award-winning cast of Casey Mulligan, Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire – is slated to hit theaters in May. Check out a trailer featuring the Winehouse cover and the Del Rey and Florence tunes below.
