OST: THE GREAT GATSBY
Soundtrack to the 2013 Baz Luhrmann film The Great Gatsby, starring Leonardo di Caprio. The soundtrack was formulated by Luhrmann andrapper Jay-Z and attempts to translate the “Jazz Age” of Fitzgerald’s original book into a contemporary setting: the Hip-hop Age. Jay-Z’s own “No Church in the Wild” and “100$ Bill” feature along with new songs by Florence + the Machine, Lana Del Rey, Nero, will.i.am and the xx were written for scenes in the film. The highly eclectic soundtrack also features songs performed by such artists as Beyonc and Andr 3000; Fergie, Q Tip and GoonRock; Coco O. of Quadron, Gotye; Nero; and Sia. There’s a also a few favorites with a new twist, such as Jack White’s interpretation of U2’s “Love Is Blindness”, Beyoncé and André 3000 collaborating on Amy Winehouse’s “Back to Black” and Bryan Ferry’s new take on a couple of classics: his own “Love Is The Drug” and, with Emeli Sandé, Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love”.
