'Gatsby' trailer gives glimpse of 'Back to Black' cover

When the track list for "The Great Gatsby" soundtrack was released on Thursday, most of us weren't surprised to see that it included the rumored Beyonce and Andre 3000 cover of Amy Winehouse's "Back to Black."

But when the reports first spread earlier this week, Amy Winehouse's father, Mitch, had been none the wiser.

"First I have heard about Beyonce and Back to Black. Sounds like some of you don't like the idea," he tweeted Tuesday. "I don't know this but what if Beyonce gave £100,000 to foundation. Do you know how many kids that would help? Just putting it out there."

Again, he reiterated, "This is the first I have heard of Beyonce doing Amys song."

Fans got to hear a snippet of the revamped single in the latest trailer for "The Great Gatsby."

As Joel Edgerton's Tom Buchanan questions the identity of Leonardo DiCaprio's Jay Gatsby - sparking an explosive response - viewers can hear the strains of a retooled "Back to Black" playing in the background of the first 30 seconds of the trailer.

Beyonce's husband Jay-Z is producing the soundtrack, which also includes music from The xx, Lana Del Rey, Gotye, Sia, Will.i.am and Jay-Z himself.

The industry mogul worked on the sound with "Gatsby" director Baz Luhrmann for two years, aiming to "capture, translate and contrast the feelings of Fitzgerald's decadent era with that of our own, using hip-hop and jazz, music contemporary and period, to bring two distinct American moments to simultaneous life."

Luhrmann himself said in March that when approaching "Gatsby," he questioned how he could "elicit from our audience the same level of excitement and pop-cultural immediacy toward the world that Fitzgerald did for his audience? And in our age, the energy of jazz is caught in the energy of hip-hop."

Which seems to explain why Jay-Z and Kanye West's collaboration with Frank Ocean, "No Church in the Wild," has featured prominently in past "Gatsby" trailers.

Check out the full tracklist for the soundtrack below. The music to "The Great Gatsby" will be available on May 7, just ahead of the movie's U.S. debut on May 10. "The Great Gatsby" will also open the Cannes Film Festival on May 15.

    You actually make it seem really easy with your presentation but I to find this topic to be actually one thing which I believe I'd never understand. It sort of feels too complicated and very wide for me. I'm having a look ahead for your subsequent publish, I will try to get the cling of it!

  22. Bob from Saskatoon

    My father was a regular in the Canadian army back in WWII, and fought with the Americans when Germany invaded Fairbanks, Alaska in ’43. The Germans kept Inuit women as concubines and my father’s unit was the one that ultimately freed them. These women were subjected to unspeakable horrors at the hands of the Germans, and were forced to do many depraved acts with their captors. One of those little Eskimo women told my dad that to get back at their tormentors; the ladies would apply sand to the insides of their c o o t e r s so that the Jerrys’ hosenwurst would get scraped raw during the forced-lovemaking. Wow, the desperate things people have to do during war time never ceased to amaze my father. The Great Gatsby was his favorite book, by the way, God rest his soul. Not sure what he would think of this new movie.

    • Yes, it will

      be down to her shoulders soon, where it will blend in with the hair that's already growing from her shoulders and the rest of her abdomen. She is a hirsute woman, a Sasquatch, almost completely covered in hair. Look at her feet...they are huge and leave BIG FOOTprints in the snow when she goes hunting for wolves and bear (which she catches with her bare hands and consumes on site).

    • Is there a beach scene in The Great Gatsby?

      Can't remember from the book or prior film interpretations. If so, I'm curious how women in the 1920s dealt with getting sand in their v a g i n a s.

      3D makes the boobies literally POP off the screen right into your face, and if there is any cootch-sand, it will appear all the more gritty and real.

    Period music makes my sister really grumpy. She always listens to it when it is her time of the month. We know to stay away from her then. When we hear those songs we know she is gonna be even more mean than usual.

  29. i'm glad

    that the film's creators decided to go with period music for this film, the story of which occurred in the so-called Jazz Age. period music will lend a certain authenticity to the picture. if they chose to use contemporary music for a movie set in the 1920s, then that would suck.

    Music today is unimaginative and dumb. Almost nothing decent has been put out since 1971.

      I agree 10000 percent. Once the 60's and 70's were over, music died. Young people these days are mostly tards.
