“The Great Gatsby” writer/producer/director Baz Luhrmann has worked with Shawn “JAY Z” Carter, an executive producer on the film, and Anton Monsted, its executive music supervisor, to translate the Jazz Age sensibility of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel into the musical equivalents of our own times, blending hip-hop, traditional jazz and other contemporary musical textures.

The soundtrack features original new music from Gotye, Lana Del Rey, Beyonce and Florence + The Machine to name but a few. 

Gotye's 'Hearts a Mess', written by Wally DeBacker (and samples Harry Belafonte's Day-O (Banana Boat Song) was released in 2007 on Gotye's second studio album Like Drawing Blood and now features on 'The Great Gatsby' soundtrack.
