Jay-Z assembles an all-star cast for the soundtrack to The Great Gatsby. The Roc Nation mogul, who serves as executive producer of the film and soundtrack, has worked closely with writer/producer/director Baz Luhrmann on the eclectic project over the past two years, blending the Jazz Age sensibility of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel with hip-hop and traditional jazz.

The Great Gatsby is that classic American story of one’s introduction to extravagance, decadence, and illusion,” said Jay-Z. “It’s ripe for experimentation and ready to be interpreted with a modern twist. The imagination Baz brought to Moulin Rouge! made it a masterpiece, and Romeo + Juliet’s score wasn’t just in the background; the music became a character. This film’s vision and direction has all the makings of an epic experience.”

Jay-Z’s own “No Church in the Wild” is included in the film, along with a new song entitled “100$ Bill.” The first single will be the haunting “Young and Beautiful” by Lana Del Rey.

The diverse lineup also includes original music from Fergie, Q Tip, Florence + The Machine, and will.i.am. Beyoncé and André 3000 duet on a cover of Amy Winehouse’s “Back to Black,” Emeli Sandé remakes Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love,” and Jack White reinterprets U2′s “Love Is Blindness.”

The soundtrack arrives on May 7, while the movie hits theaters on May 10. See the tracklisting and hear a clip of “Back to Black” in the trailer below.

(Video) Preview: Boardwalk Empire Season 3 Premiere TONIGHT on HBO!!!!!

The greatest show on TV premiers its third season tonight at 9pm on HBO.  Boardwalk Empire.  If you like any of the following movies, you will love Boardwalk Empire: Scarface, Goodfellas, Heat, Casino, Carlitos Way, The Departed. Boardwalk Empire has created some already notorious and notable characters from Nucky Thompson (the absolutely ruthless & crafty politician/gangster who makes most of his bread bootlegging liquor and don’t mind murkin’ a mufucka every now and then if necessary) Chalky White (the thick faced, take-no-shit-from-no-man country boy from the south who moved north to provide a better life for his family.) Arnold Rothstein, the very intelligent, cool and calculating Jewish gangster from New York who favors making money over murder.  And lets not forget about Margaret Schroeder, the Irish ride-or-die bitch for Nucky who smashed the homie, gave away millions of dollars worth of Nucky’s land and still stands to tell about about it……well, at least up until season 3.  Because its one thing we learned in the season 2 finale: NOBODY IS SAFE on Boardwalk Empire!! Anybody can get murked.  RIP Jimmy.

See y’all tonight @ 9pm on HBO
