Listen: 'Great Gatsby' versions of 'Crazy in Love' and 'Back to Black'


Two of the most anticipated tracks from the movie's soundtrack have been released/leaked onto the interwebz.

Interscope has released the full version of Emeli Sandé and the Bryan Ferry Orchestra's version of "Crazy In Love." What we love about this track is that it's a totally fresh angle on Beyonce's original, while staying true to the Gatsby era's musical roots. We just want to sit in a cigar lounge and sip on aged whisky while this song plays.

Unfortunately, Beyoncé and André 3000's cover of Amy Winehouse's "Back to Black" doesn't hold a candle to the rest of the songs. It's dark, it's a little weird and a little too simplistic. But, then again, maybe we just need to give it a few more listens.

Take a listen to both tracks below and let us know what you think. The soundtrack will be released on May 7th, a few days before the movie's release on May 10th.
