Great Gatsby Soundtrack To Feature New Songs By Jay-Z, The xx, Lana Del Rey, Beyoncé & André 3000

By Claire Lobenfeld / April 4, 2013

As we reported earlier this year, Jay-Z had a large hand in the music component of the upcoming Baz Lurhmann’s film adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. The tracklist for the soundtrack, which Jay executive produced, has been revealed and includes an eclectic array of artists. On the theme of the music, Lurhmann says, “While we acknowledge, as Fitzgerald phrased it, ‘the Jazz Age,’ and this is the period represented on screen, we — our audience — are living in ‘the Hip-Hop Age’ and want our viewers to feel the impact of modern-day music the way Fitzgerald did for the readers of his novel at the time of its publication.” The soundtrack includes original material from the xx, Lana Del Rey, and Florence + the Machine. It will feature a cover of Amy Winehouse’s “Back In Black” as performed by Beyoncé and Andre 3000, Jack White taking on U2’s “Love Is Blindness,” and R&B-soul upstart Emeli Sandé doing a rendition of Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s “Crazy In Love” accompanied by the Bryan Ferry Orchestra.
