Lana Del Rey's 'Great Gatsby' Track 'Young & Beautiful' Hits The Web
The soundtrack to Baz Luhrmann's forthcoming adaptation of "The Great Gatsby" will include a typically lush Lana Del Rey ballad, as the singer's "Young & Beautiful," the first single from the compilation, has officially hit the Web.
"Will you still love me when I'm no longer young and beautiful?" the singer asks with a hint of desperation on a track which nods to the insecurities at the heart of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic book. Like LDR staples "Video Games" and "Born To Die," "Young & Beautiful" positions the singer-songwriter's sweeping vocals front and center, with dreamy strings and canned percussion pulling her back to earth.
The "Great Gatsby" soundtrack, due out on May 7, was executive-produced by Jay-Z, and also features new music from Will.i.am, Beyonce, The xx and the Jiggaman himself. Florence & The Machine's "Over The Love" previewed the soundtrack last week.
