‘Great Gatsby’ Soundtrack Boasts Big Names Jay-Z, Beyonce And Lana Del Rey

Fourteen-song soundtrack also includes the likes of Florence and the Machine, will.i.am and Gotye.

“The Great Gatsby” is a literary classic, but don’t expect the upcoming flick to be bogged down with tunes from the Roaring Twenties — especially since producers locked down Jay-Z to help score the highly anticipated movie.

On Thursday (April 4), Interscope Records and Warner Bros. Pictures released the all-star track list for “The Great Gatsby” film soundtrack at the same time that a new trailer for the flick was released with much of the new music in place.

Hov himself will set off the 14-track OST with a brand-new track titled “100$ Bill,” while his wife Beyoncé teams up with Andre 3000 to bring new life into Amy Winehouse’s “Back to Black.”

With the film’s score, Jay-Z, film director Baz Luhrmann and executive music supervisor Anton Monsted aimed to take the jazzy feel from F. Scott Fitzgerald’s 1925 novel and give it a contemporary twist with key contributions from will.i.am, Florence and the Machine, Lana Del Rey, Gotye, Jack White, Fergie and Q-Tip.

The new, suspense-filled trailer starts off with a sampling of Beyoncé and 3 Stacks’ number, then gives us a taste of Lana Del Rey’s somber-sounding”Young and Beautiful,” as stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan express their love. To close, Florence and the Machine’s pounding and pulsating “Over the Love” builds with fast-moving scenes of Gatsby’s playboy lifestyle quickly unraveling.

The soundtrack will be released on May 7, just three days before the film hits theaters.
