The Great Gatsby soundtrack is available to stream


The Great Gatsby is shaping up to be one of the more polarizing films of the year. With Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge!) at the helm, it’s no surprise that his take on the great American novel of the same name has been met with curious interest.

That same curiosity extends to the film’s official soundtrack, which is available in stores now. Luhrmann juxtaposes the film’s 1920s setting with a modern soundtrack full of hip hop and Lana del Rey. One of the most-talked about songs on the soundtrack is the “Back to Black” cover by Andre 3000 and Beyonce. Produced by local Chicago superhero Hollywood Holt, the cover retains the somber tone of the Amy Winehouse original while spinning a hip hop production to the track.

You can stream the entire soundtrack on NPR.
