Beyoncé and Andre 3000 Cover Amy Winehouse for ‘Gatsby’ Soundtrack

After weeks of new stuff from The xx, Florence + The Machine and the lingering memories of the first trailer with the weird Filter version of "Happy Together" still fresh, over the weekend, Mark Ronson premiered one of the most built-up songs from the soundtrack of one of the most aggressively hyped films of the year. Jay-Z produced the already-exploding soundtrack for Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming (less than two weeks!) adaptation of The Great Gatsby, and his partner-in-crime Beyoncé features on a cover of Amy Winehouse’s anthem of heartbreak, "Back to Black" with Andre 3000. 

Mark Ronson, who produced the original "Back to Black," premiered the new track on East Village Radio mixshow over the weekend, and you can listen to a (heavily tagged) full version below. Hollywood Holt of Chicago’s Treated Crew produced the track, marked by a squishy synth line that may leave some fans longing for the original—and no version of this song could touch Winehouse’s, despite the all-star team—but Beyoncé, as always, still comes away sounding fantastic.
