The electronic trio joins Jay-Z and Beyonce on the soundtrack of the summer.
When the buzz-heavy official soundtrack for "The Great Gatsby" film is released on May 7, it will include new tracks from artists like Jay-Z, Beyonce, and Florence + The Machine, developed especially for the film. But the big stars weren’t the only ones to get in on the action.
Best known for their Grammy-winning remix of their own original “Promises” (in collaboration with some guy named Skrillex), Nero is currently enjoying a 10-week run on the Hot 100 with the track, which peaked at No. 70. Their 2011 album “Welcome Reality,” which contains “Promises,” spent 65 weeks on the Dance/Electronic Albums chart and peaked at No. 6. The trio -- producers Joseph Ray and Dan Stephens and singer Alana Watson -- have a heavy dubstep-powered sound offset by Watson’s pop-wise vocals. They’re currently in the studio recording their sophomore effort for Interscope.
