The Great Gatsby hits theaters on Friday, and Rdio has the original soundtrack to the 2013 motion picture directed by Baz Luhrmann available for you to hear below.
The soundtrack features a brilliant collaboration with filmmaker and musician Jeymes Samuel from The Bullitts who served as the executive music consultant on the film. “I worked on the music with Jay-Z for The Great Gatsby,” Samuel told thesource.com
Together they cultivated new songs, previously released tracks, and unique covers, such as the dark rendition of Samuel’s good friend, the late Amy Winehouse’s song “Back to Black” performed by Beyonce and Andre 3000.
The film is an adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Long Island-set novel, where Midwesterner Nick Carraway is lured into the lavish world of his neighbor, Jay Gatsby—and soon enough, Carraway will see through the cracks of Gatsby’s nouveau riche existence, where obsession, madness, and tragedy await.
Click below to experience Daisy Buchanan (played by Carey Mulligan) reincarnated under the guise of artists such as Beyonce, Lana Del Ray, Sia, and Florence Welch as well as the rest of the sexy soundtrack by heavy-hitters The xx, Jay-Z, and Jack White.
