Hear the Anachronism: Entire 'Great Gatsby' Soundtrack Now Streaming

May 2, 2013


At last the Roaring '20s will roar with the sounds Black Eyed Peas call music in Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of The Great Gatsby. The director had Jay-Z executive-produce his soundtrack, and beyond contributing to it himself, he brought in the likes of Beyoncé, André 3000, Jack White, Florence + The Machine, the xx, Gotye, will.i.am, Fergie, and others to ensure that this movie about the Jazz Age would not include any actual jazz, but would have a song called "100$ Bill." And now you can hear it all early by streaming the whole album online. Start deciding which track you'll dub your "summer F. Scott Fitzgerald-inspired jam" over at NPR.
