Listen to Lana Del Rey’s ‘Young and Beautiful’ in Full
If the previews of Baz Luhrmann’s ‘The Great Gatsby,’ are any indication, coupled with the stellar choice of musical accompaniment, this movie is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated flicks of the year.
After a short preview, Lana Del Rey finally released her track for the movie, ‘Young and Beautiful’ in it’s entirety and it sounds like the perfect addition for the more dramatic scenes in the film adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel.
LDR croons, “Will you still love me when I’m no longer young and beautiful / Will you still love me when I got nothing but my aching soul,” over an amazingly-epic string section that has become the staple of her vintage sound. Perfect for the ’20s time period!
Del Rey is just one element to a soundtrack lineup that reads like a whose who of the pop music world including tracks by Jay-Z, Beyonce, Fergie, will.i.am, Sia, Florence + the Machine and Gotye. We’re excited to hear the whole album, which comes out May 7, but more importantly see how the songs are used within the movie!
