The star-studded tracklist for the upcoming film adaptation of The Great Gatsby has already yielded previews of new music from Beyonce & Andre 3000, Lana Del Rey and Florence and the Machine in the trailer for the film, and now Fergie, Q-Tip and GoonRock’s contribution to what promises to be an epic soundtrack has been released in full.
The song, “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got),” is a super danceable club jam featuring throwback saxophone riffs and a Duke Ellington-inspired bridge. Despite the nods to 1920s popular music, its sound is certainly at odds with what Jay Gatsby and company would’ve been bumping at their parties in West Egg (as it sounds like much of the soundtrack will be). We’re excited to see how the movie – set in 1922, for those of you who only read the SparkNotes in high school – will incorporate these distinctly modern tracks — but then, we’re just excited for the movie in general. Who isn’t?
The soundtrack drops on May 7th, with the movie slated to open on May 10th. Hear the new track below.
