Frank Ocean, Jack White, Florence + the Machine, and Filter join “Great Gatsby” party (video)By Kelsey Fowler | December 20th, 2012 | 1 Comment »
Director Baz Luhrmann’s films “Romeo + Juliet” and “Moulin Rouge” have been praised for their odd, quirky style as well as unique charm — with the soundtrack always playing a starring role. While his upcoming big-screen adaption of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic book “The Great Gatsby” won’t be out until May, viewers are already getting a good idea of what the film will sound like thanks to the movie’s trailers.
In October, Spin reported that Prince and Lady Gaga were rumored to be contributing original music to the film, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire. Now, a new trailer adds a few more artists into the mix. The two clips released so far include Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Frank Ocean collaboration, “No Church in the Wild,” Florence + the Machine’s “Bedroom Hymns,” Filter’s cover of the Turtles’ “Happy Together,” and Jack White‘s take on U2’s “Love Is Blindness.”
Which artist’s song will end up as the life of the party? Watch the trailer below and decide for yourself.
