The Great Gatsby just keeps getting better and better, and we haven't even seen the whole movie yet!
While it seems like a new trailer for the film is released every month, this month is the best yet with a sneak of Beyoncé’s cover of Amy Winehouse’s “Back to Black” opening up the trailer. Along with that, we get a taste of who else Jay-Z thought was worthy enough to be a part of the soundtrack -- which just so happens to be Lana Del Rey and Florence + The Machine!

Word got out this week that Beyoncé was teaming up with Andre 3000 (yeah, the guy from Outkast) for their take on Amy’s “Back to Black,” and they'd put their own spin on the hit song. Mission accomplished, since the song sounds almost unrecognizable with Bey’s voice.
Playing the role of executive producer for the Great Gatsby score, Jay-Z brought in a wide array of genres, but all respectable artists to bring the right mood to the film. The tracklisting for the soundtrack has been released, which includes The xx, Jack White, will.i.am and more.
The Great Gatsby Soundtrack:
- Jay-Z – "100$ Bill"
- Beyoncé and André 3000 – "Back to Black"
- will.i.am – "Bang Bang"
- Fergie, Q-Tip, and GoonRock – "A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got)"
- Lana Del Rey – "Young and Beautiful"
- Bryan Ferry with The Bryan Ferry Orchestra – "Love Is The Drug"
- Florence and the Machine – "Over The Love"
- Coco O. of Quadron – "Where The Wind Blows"
- Emeli Sandé and The Bryan Ferry Orchestra – "Crazy in Love"
- The xx – "Together"
- Gotye – "Hearts a Mess"
- Jack White – "Love is Blindless"

The soundtrack is set to drop May 7th, only a few days before the film’s May 10th release. While it seems like we’ve been waiting forever for this film since it was moved from its original December 25th, 2012 release, we like to think it’s more like feeding our anticipation.
