Baz Luhrmann’s forthcoming “Great Gatsby” film adaptation will boast some of the A-list-iest of A-lister actors, and the same goes for its soundtrack. Jay-Z was roped in as executive producer and supervisor on the film’s soundtrack, so as you can imagine, he showed up, his wife Beyonce showed up and new songs from big names like Florence + The Machine made the cut.
A new trailer for the film dropped this morning, and it includes Beyonce and Andre 3000 previously confirmed cover of Amy Winehouse’s “Back to Black”; a fresh track from Lana Del Rey called “Young and Beautiful”; and Florence’s new “Over the Love.” “Will you still love me when I’m no longer young and beautiful,” she sings. (Ugh, Lana.)
Bryan Ferry and his Orchestra show up twice, including for one take on Bey and Hov’s “Crazy in Love” with Immaculate Noise favorite Emeli Sande taking the lead.
Also: check out Fergie who’s apparently back in action with “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got)” with GoonRock and Tribe’s Q-Tip. Fergie-ferg’s cohort will.i.am — who is apparently contractually obliged to show up on anything with a budget — has a slot with “Bang Bang.”
Previously released songs like Jack White’s cover of U2’s “Love Is Blindness” and Gotye’s “Hearts a Mess.” One of the lesser known names on the list, Quadron and its singer Coco O, have some tunes up here, if you want to check them out. More electronica will be had from trio Nero and The xx is on there to smooth your hair after you’re through crying.
Target will have a 17-track deluxe edition out in May. The film heads to theaters on May 10.
