As predicted, The Great Gatsby soundtrack is epic epic EPIC.

Snippets have been meaningfully leaked onto the interwebz, intentionally teasing your ears with amazingness. It's a perfect mix of old and new, keeping with the classic aesthetic of F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel while being composed with a modern twist–just like the upcoming feature film.

The all-star musical lineup is, so far, living up to expectations. Take a listen to 10-15 second clips of each of the songs below from The xx,, Florence & The Machine and more. Unfortunately, it excludes Beyoncé and André 3000's Amy Winehouse cover as well as Jay-Z's "100$ Bill"–probably the two most anticipated tracks.

Highlight: Emeli Sandé's cover of Beyoncé's "Crazy in Love"
