Baz Luhrmann’s film adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s ‘great American novel’, The Great Gatsby is due for release on the 10th of May with a dazzling cast consisting of Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, Australian actor Joel Edgerton and Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby, himself.
The soundtrack to the film is already in the works by Interscope Records and right off the bat from reports that rap mogul, Jay-Z, would be producing the soundtrack, word on the street is that Beyonce will be making her contribution to the record by means of a cover version of Amy Winehouse’s Grammy award-winning hit single, ‘Back to Black’. To all the Winehouse purests, don’t fret, apparently, Bey’s version will be different and unexpected. “It’s a very different take on Back to Black,” an Interscope label spokesperson told E! News.
We wait in great anticipation! Check out Winehouse’s original down here and we’ll bring you Bey’s cover soon as it drops:
