Preview Beyonce’s ‘Back to Black’ Cover in New ‘Great Gatsby’ Trailer

The new trailer for ‘The Great Gatsby‘ is loud and colorful, and will certainly make you want to see the Leonardo DiCaprio-fronted film. But you also get to hear a blessed snippet of Beyonce covering Amy Winehouse‘s ‘Back to Black’ with Andre 3000. Oh my!

The Bey cover appears in the top half of the trailer, which is nearly three-minutes long. It’s not Bey the belter, though — it’s a few restrained bars, teasing us about what’s to come in the song and in the film. It’s short, but it certainly is worth your attention.

But that’s not all. The new clip also features music by Lana Del Rey (‘Young and Beautiful’) and Florence and the Machine (‘Over the Love’). Lana’s voice erupts at around 1:05 in, while Flo’s does the same at 1:44 mark.

Jay-Z exec produced the soundtrack to the Baz Luhrmann film, and you can see the full track list below (via XFM). Clearly, the music supervisors were going for epic, big diva voices with their choices. Bey, LDR, Flo and other soundtrack artists like Emeli Sande and Sia are all cinematic when they sing, making them perfect vocal accompaniment to the emotionally compelling film.

Who else is stoked to hear Bey offer up her take of the Amy Winehouse classic? Did you like what you heard so far, PopCrushers?
