Earlier today we got to listen to a snippet of Back To Black, the highly-anticipated Amy Winehouse cover from Beyoncé and André 3000. The Great Gatsby soundtrack is turning out to be as awesome as I thought it would be when we first saw the tracklist; I loved what we heard of the Back To Black cover and I loved, loved, loved that Florence + The Machine track. Today we’re also getting the full version of Lana Del Rey’s contribution to the soundtrack, Young & Beautiful. Click inside for more!
Lana Del Rey, Young & Beautiful:
OMG, I’m gonna eargasm all over this soundtrack. I swear.
I know PITNBr VV was waiting for this song to drop. VV, you likey? I think the lyrics make so much sense for the Gatsby storyline:
I’ve seen the world
Done it all
Had my cake now
In bel air now
Hot summer nights, mid july
When you and I were forever wild
The crazy days, city lights
The way you’d play with me like a child
Will you still love me
When I’m no longer young and beautiful?
Sigh. You can go to DirectLyrics to check out the rest of the lyrics to Young & Beautiful. So psyched to hear more of these songs!
The Great Gatsby soundtrack will be available on iTunes on May 7.
The Great Gatsby hits theatres May 10.
