While I loved the literary masterpiece that is The Great Gatsby, I would be lying if I said there was something I was more excited for then the impending soundtrack for what is set up to be the film of the summer. We have all heard of stacked casts and their attachment to success, yet the same does not ring true for the world of music.
The glamorous over the top tales of Mr. Gatsby will forever be remembered by the soundtrack of the century and the star studded tracklist that has already blown us all away. Interscope (biggest record company in the biz) and Jay-Z (no explanation necessary) have put together something truly magical in the form of Florence + The Machine, Fergie, Beyonce, The XX, Gotye, Emilie Sande, Lana Del Rey, and a list longer then the book itself.
Naturally the track that stands above the rest would be the beautiful ballad by none other then Florence Welch. The four and a half minute epic has been released in full and for good reason. Music this good needs to be shared.
If you loved “Out Of Love” then you will be pleased to hear that her song “Bedroom Hymns” will also be featured in the film and you can catch that one HERE.
