Beyonce, Gotye perform on 'The Great Gatsby' album

UPI News Service, 04/04/2013 

The soundtrack for the New York-set Jazz Age movie "The Great Gatsby" will include recordings by Beyonce, Gotye, and Jack White.

Also to be featured on the Interscope Records soundtrack are Lana Del Rey, Florence + The Machine, The xx, Fergie, Q Tip and GoonRock and The Bryan Ferry Orchestra, Warner Bros. announced Thursday.

The big-screen adaptation of F.Scott Fitzgerald's literary classic was written, produced and directed by Baz Luhrmann. Hip-hop mogul Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter is an executive producer on the film, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan.

"F. Scott Fitzgerald 's novel is peppered with contemporary music references specific to the story's setting of 1922. While we acknowledge, as Fitzgerald phrased it, 'the Jazz Age,' and this is the period represented on screen, we -- our audience -- are living in the 'Hip-Hop Age' and want our viewers to feel the impact of modern-day music the way Fitzgerald did for the readers of his novel at the time of its publication," Luhrmann said in a statement.

Jay-Z's "No Church in the Wild," which he was recording when he and Luhrmann first came together, is included in the film, along with his original "100$ Bill."
