I hate it when websites or magazines get exclusive access to shit that everybody should have access to, especially when they’ll just wind up releasing it to everyone the next day. Whatever…so you all know that Baz Luhrman is doing his take on the F. Scott Fitzgarald classic The Great Gatsby and as with all Luhrman pictures he’s got an amazing soundtrack arranged and produced by himself and Jay Z, to supplement the craziness. So far we’ve heard some snippets in the latest GG trailer of Beyonce, Lana Del Rey and Andre 3000 and now we, or should I say GQ, got the exclusive on one of the songs off the OST called “Over the Love” performed by Florence and The Machine.
The track is fitting and every bit as sweeping as any Florence and the Machine track ever was. Strings, belting vocals and drums, big big drums. If this is any example of what’s to come, I’m going to have to pre-order this soundtrack now.

“The Great Gatsby” follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz, bootleg kings, and sky-rocketing stocks. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio), and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy (Carey Mulligan), and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton). It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without of the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.
