As if the costumes (designed by Miuccia Prada!) and cast weren’t already enough of an excuse to get excited for the upcoming Baz Luhrmann-directed rendition of The Great Gatsby, now we’ve got a trailer with previews of the soundtrack in addition to a full list of songs. The trailer features Beyoncé and Andre 3000 covering Amy Winehouse’s Back to Black, Lana del Ray with a haunting new tune and a goosebump-inducing Florence + The Machine original. The star-studded soundtrack cast will also feature Bryan Ferry with The Bryan Ferry Orchestra, Jack White and the executive producer of the film, Jay Z. Talk about a serious summer blockbuster that we can’t wait to see… though we all agree that the original will be tough to beat!
