If you’ve seen one of the (approximately) 63 trailers that have so far been released for the upcoming The Great Gatsby, you would have caught a snippet of the film’s all-star soundtrack. Curated by Jay-Z, it features original material from Jack White, Florence and the Machine, and Emeli Sandé.

Lana Del Rey’s contribution, “Young and Beautiful”, has just been released and it’s typical of what we’ve come to expect from the “Video Games” singer, namely singing sultrily about pleasing her man, nostalgia, and a healthy dose of doom and gloom. “Will you still love me when I’m no longer young and beautiful?” she croons over some swelling strings.

If you can’t wait for the film’s release (unbelievably there is still three and a half weeks to go), then this should keep you satisfied until then.
