Young and Beautiful

Next month marks the release of Baz Luhrmann's eagerly anticipated film adaption of The Great Gatsby. The soundtrack seems to be racking up as many stars as the movie, with Lana Del Rey's offering of Young And Beautiful already garnering thousands of listens on Soundcloud. Del Rey – who wrote the track with Rick mobile casino Nowels – recently described Luhrmann's take on the F Scott Fitzgerald classic as “highly glamorous and exciting”.

The ballad features haunting vocals typical of Del Rey's style, with dreamy strings and insecure lyrics. Jay-Z has curated the overall soundtrack, which also includes Beyoncé, Florence The Machine, Andre 3000, Fergie, Jack White, and Emeli Sandé.

The Great Gatsby debuts on May 16 in the UK with the soundtrack set to release on May 7.
