There are many great things about the upcoming film adaptation of The Great Gatsby, but one of the great-est is the soundtrack, which features new tunes from Florence & The Machine, Lana Del Rey, Sia, Emeli Sande and a lot of other great artists, too. Great!
Now, the official sampler for the soundtrack has been unveiled, featuring 30-second snippets from each of the songs. Unsurprisingly, Lana Del Rey’s “Young & Beautiful” is an instant standout, but Emeli Sande’s 1920s redux of Beyonce‘s “Crazy In Love” is stiff competition. As for Fergie‘s “A Little Party,” which was unveiled in full yesterday — well, it’s not the best thing here, mercifully. Listen to the full sampler up top, then check after the jump to skip around.
