The Great Gatsby soundtrack hits stores May 7th, three days before the Baz Luhrmann adaptation is released. Jay Z is the film’s executive producer and soundtrack producer. The album cover is even similar to Watch the Throne’s cover.
Here’s the soundtrack’s good news: The xx, Florence and the Machine, Jack White, Emeli Sande, Lana Del Rey, Sia, Nero, Andre 3000. Here’s the bad news: will.i.am and Fergie. The good definitely outweighs the bad.
