Considering the way Baz Luhrmann has teased music for The Great Gatsby, people are anticipating the soundtrack almost as much as the film itself. Warner Bros. Pictures and Universal Music Group’s Interscope Records released the tracklist a month ago, which didn’t help anyone’s patience. Well, wait no longer; NPR just posted a “First Listen” on which you can stream 57 minutes of music from the film.
With previous films such as Moulin Rouge and Romeo + Juliet, Luhrmann has a built a reputation for interesting soundtrack choices. However, some may argue choosing the music for the Gatsby remake provides a little more pressure.
To judge how the music truly plays into the story, we will have to wait until the film is released on May 10. Check out the soundtrack here.
