Lana Del Rey Premieres Full Version Of Track She Penned For The Great Gatsby

Lana Del Rey Premieres Full Version Of 'Young And Beautiful' From The Great Gatsby Soundtrack

Another full length song from The Great Gatbsy soundtrack has just dropped, and this time it's an original song entitled ‘Young And Beautiful’ by the equally young and beautiful Lana Del Rey.

The track features in the trailer for the Baz Luhrmann film, which is an adaptation of the novel which many believe to be one of the greatest works of American literature in history.

Inspired by a love of the classic story herself, Del Rey sticks to the trademark style of her acclaimed debut album Born To Die, while mixing in a distinctly Gatsby edge.

The haunting song features sweeping American influences with epic strings, and heart breaking lyrics like: “Will you still love me when I'm no longer young and beautiful / Will you still love me when I got nothing but my aching soul.”

Speaking about the track to Gigwise Del Rey said: "It was an honour to work with Baz Luhrmann on his amazing adaptation of one of the most extraordinary books ever written…The movie is highly glamorous and exciting; Rick Nowels and I were thrilled to write the song for the film.”

‘Young and Beautiful’ is the latest song to be released from the soundtrack, which has been produced by rap mogul Jay Z, and follows hot on the heels of Florence + The Machine's contribution to the movie, 'Over The Love', as well as Beyonce’s cover of Amy Winehouse’s ‘Back To Black’.
