You’ve already made up your mind on Lana Del Rey, so if you’re reading this, you’re either a fan, or just curious enough to add fuel to your fire. It’s fitting that she’s a part of the soundtrack for the upcoming film adaptation of the treasured novel The Great Gatsby. Opinion’s on how the film will turn out seem to be severely polarizing, which usually doesn’t bode too well for a film’s fate. But I am still looking forward to see how it all unfolds, we certainly know that director Baz Luhrmann will deliver something that will be discussed one way or another, that’s for sure.
Last week we saw Florence + The Machine’s contribution to the film’s soundtrack. Now we have Lana Del Rey’s, a song called “Young and Beautiful” which she worked on with Luhrmann. It’s definitely got a big-time sound, floating above cinematic clouds of smoke.
