THE GREAT GATSBY

Executive producer (and featured performer) Jay-Z has pulled a Gatsby with a lavish, star-studded album befitting Leonardo DiCaprio‘s new blockbuster. Everyone from Fergie and Jack White to Florence + the Machine and Mrs. Jay-Z, Beyoncé, joins the party with cool covers and new tunes that evoke the spirit of the Roaring ’20s and capture the sumptuous splendor of the film. Highlights include Emeli Sandé’s jazzy revamp of “Crazy in Love” and Gotye’s “Hearts a Mess,” a lost gem from 2006 that is rich in cinematic atmospherics.
