Earlier this week it was revealed that Beyoncé and OutKast’s André 3000 teamed up again to cover Amy Winehouse’s “Back to Black” for Baz Luhrmann’s film adaptation of The Great Gatsby. Now fans can get an early listen to the moody cover, thanks to a new trailer released today (April 4).

“It’s a very different take on ‘Back to Black,’” an unnamed source from Interscope Records reportedly told E! of the cover. They weren’t lying – Bey and Andre’s take is dark, slow and nearly unrecognizable from Winehouse’s original.

The nearly three-minute trailer also features haunting vocals from Florence + the Machine and Lana Del Rey, who both appear on the soundtrack with new songs. Watch and listen below.


As revealed today, Bey isn’t the only A-list artist featured on the soundtrack. Her husband Jay-Z, an executive producer on the film and the man behind the soundtrack, wrote an original track “100$ Bill” for the film. There’s also new music from and the xx specifically penned for the summer blockbuster, as well as contributions from Fergie, Emeli Sande, Gotye and Jack White.

White’s cover of U2’s “Love Is Blindness” was sampled in the first trailer for The Great Gatsby, as was Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “No Church in the Wild”; however, only the former appears on the soundtrack.
