Since we stole our first breathtaking glimpse into F. Scott Fitzgerald’s newly imagined world, there has been a lot of hype and anticipation surrounding Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby adaptation.
From a dramatic, over-the-top trailer to an all-star cast, all eyes are on Luhrmann until the film’s May 10 release. (I know, so soon, right?!) But even if this Gatsby hasn’t been able to capture your attention thus far, maybe seeing the soundtrack can sway you. It’s not your typical Roaring ’20s compilation, but with Jay-Z at the helm, you can’t really go wrong.

The soundtrack features artist like Jack White, Lana Del Rey, Florence + the Machine, Beyoncé and Andre 3000 (covering Amy Winehouse’s “Back To Black”) and more. I was pretty delighted when I saw the list of tunes sure to reflect the epic grandeur of Gatsby:

“100$ Bill” – Jay-Z
“Back To Black” – Beyoncé x Andre 3000
“Bang Bang” – will.i.am
“A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got)” – Fergie + Q Tip + GoonRock
“Young And Beautiful” – Lana Del Rey
“Love Is The Drug” – Bryan Ferry with The Bryan Ferry Orchestra
“Over The Love” – Florence + The Machine
“Where The Wind Blows” – Coco O. of Quadron
“Crazy in Love” – Emeli Sande and The Bryan Ferry Orchestra
“Together” – The xx
“Hearts A Mess” – Gotye
“Love Is Blindness” – Jack White
“Into the Past” – Nero
“Kill and Run” – Sia

If you’re still not sold, check out a new trailer for the film and hear snippets of the tunes from the Beyoncé and Andre 3000 collab, Lana Del Rey and Florence! [via Refinery 29]
