Lana Del Rey, ‘Young & Beautiful’ [Listen]
High schoolers dreading the prospect of reading F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Roaring Twenties novel ‘The Great Gatsby,’ take note: Lana Del Rey is a huge fan. In fact, the suave singer contributed the new, original tune ‘Young & Beautiful’ to director Baz Luhrmann’s big-screen adaptation of the book, adding her star power to a soundtrack that also includes songs from the xx, Florence + the Machine, Gotye, Jack White and more.
“It was an honor to work with Baz Luhrmann on his amazing adaptation of one of the most extraordinary books ever written,” Del Rey raves. ‘The Great Gatsby’ hits screens May 10, and the soundtrack drops three days prior, but in the meantime, you can check out ’Young & Beautiful’ below.
