Never has a film soundtrack been anticipated almost as much as the film itself, but that seems to be the case with The Great Gatsby‘s musical offering, as executive producer JAY Z roped in some heavy hitters to contribute their sounds.
Today we get a preview of sultry songstress Lana Del Rey‘s track “Young & Beautiful”, previously heard in the film’s trailer.

The 30 second clip hears Del Rey’s echoing voice play out on a dramatic song of lost love and heartbreak, with the emotive singer reminiscing about the better times.

This is the latest sound to be heard from the soundtrack, that includes a cover of Amy Winehouse‘s “Back To Black” by Beyoncé and Andre 3000, as well as additional songs from Florence & The Machine, Q Tip, The xx and Emeli Sandé.

The Great Gatsby will be released in cinemas May 7th, with the soundtrack set to be released on April 23rd.
