Past Tracks

In January we learned that Jay-Z's score for Baz Luhrmann's forthcoming The Great Gatsby -- hence the J and Z embossed in the album cover above -- was "too dope for words." The full soundtrack, which drops three days prior to the May 10 movie release, includes Jack White, Beyoncé, André 3000, Q-Tip, the xx, and of course Lana Del Rey.
