The Jay-Z-produced soundtrack to The Great Gatsby is getting a release worthy of the Jazz Age. Today, Jack White‘s Third Man Records announced that they will produce the much-anticipated film’s music on vinyl as well as digitally. The label will also be releasing seven-inch singles of key tracks, including the boss’s howling ballad, “Love is Blindness.”
The soundtrack features new tracks from White, Florence and the Machine, Emeli Sandé and the Bryan Ferry Orchestra, Beyoncé and Andre 3000 and more. Jay-Z worked with the film’s composer, Craig Armstrong, and music supervisor, Anton Monsted for the album, which will be released on May 7th, three days before the film opens.
