The Gatsby Soundtrack

Produced by Jay-Z, I am already loving the tracks that have dropped. The soundtrack will feature Jay-Z, Beyoncé, the xx, Jack White, Gotye, Kanye, Frank Ocean, Nero, & Sia!  This is set to be an epic film soundtrack, a rare feat in my book.

'Over the Love' by Florence + the Machine, gorgeous & haunting:

'Young & Beautiful' by Lana del Rey, beautiful & not annoying! Available for purchase on iTunes now, in advance of the soundtrack release.

Beyoncé’s much buzzed about cover of Amy Winehouse’s ‘Back to Black’ with Andre 3000 (you will have to deal with the annoying radio promotional tags until a better version becomes available).

Soundtrack available on iTunes May 7 (pre-order now).

What do you guys think of the Yeah Yeah Yeah's new album, Mosquito?  I’m not in love.  It’s Blitz! is one of my all-times, so I’m bummed I’m not into this one.  I did the thing I hate to do & bought one song (Wedding Song).  Listen to their single, Sacrilege, HERE.  You can see them live at this year’s Outside Lands.  Karen O is a force live.
