'The Great Gatsby' trailer: Beyonce covers Amy Winehouse. Plus: Lana Del Rey and Florence + The Machine

The new trailer for Baz Luhrmann’s glitter-bomb adaptation of The Great Gatsby features three songs from the Jay-Z-produced Gatsby soundtrack, and it’s an apppropriately eclectic and wackadoo anachronistic mix. There’s Beyoncé and André 3000 covering Amy Winehouse’s “Back to Black.” There’s Lana Del Rey — certainly a minor character in her own tragicomic F. Scott Fitzgerald short story — with the heretofore unreleased track “Young & Beautiful,” which used to be called “Will You Still Love Me.”

Last up is Florence + The Machine, who have a song called “Over The Love” that includes the lyrics “I can see the green light/I can see it in your eye.” Somewhere, a high schooler is already adding that song to the end of their sophomore-English PowerPoint Presentation, “The Man With The Yellow Car: Color Themes in The Great Gatsby.” The point is, Fitzgerald would be proud/too drunk to care.
