Sources have now confirmed that Beyoncé and André 3000 will indeed be covering Amy Winehouse’s hit song, “Back to Black” for The Great Gatsby soundtrack.
For those that don’t remember, Beyoncé’s husband, Jay-Z will be producing the soundtrack for the film which will be released through Interscope Records. According to a record company source, “it’s a very different take on ‘Back to Black.”
This joint force between the two music powerhouses will be their second time working together, musically. Their first time working together was for Beyoncé’s 2011 single, “Party.”
The Great Gatsby is a remake of the hit F. Scott Fitzgerald book by the same name which stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire and is directed by Rome0 + Juliet director, Baz Luhrman. The film was originally supposed to hit theaters just in time for Christmas, but due to some issues, the film had been pushed back until May 10.
