Album cover Artwork for Beyonce And Andre 3000 “Back To Black” For The Great Gatsby Soundtrack

The Great Gatsby is based on F. Scott Fitzgerald‘s novel of the same name and follows the doomed love story between Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Daisy Buchanan (Carey Mulligan). In the book, Gatsby conquers the American dream to try to win Daisy back from her wealthy husband.

Listen to a radio rip of the track, the track debuted last night on East Village radio by the song’s original co-writer Mark Ronson

The song, “Back to Black”, was written by Amy Winehouse and Mark Ronson for her second studio album, also titled Back to Black, and deals with her tumultuous relationship with Blake Fielder-Civil. The song specifically references a time that Fielder-Civil left Winehouse for his ex-girlfriend, prompting her to return to depression and drugs.
Sources say that Beyonce and Andre 3000′s version is “a very different take on ‘Back to Black’”.
The Great Gatsby premieres on May 15 at the Cannes Film Festival.

Director Baz Luhrmann‘s films are always melodramatically romantic, sumptuously stunning and scored to amazing popular music. But his next film, The Great Gatsby, might even have a better soundtrack than Moulin Rouge or Romeo + Juliet.
The man himself, Jay Z, produced The Great Gatsby‘s soundtrack, Beyoncé and André 3000 contributed their own take on Amy Winehouse famous “Back To Black”.
