With each day we get closer to the premiere of The Great Gatsby, another glimpse is given into the highly anticipated accompanying soundtrack, in stores May 7 and available for pre-order on iTunes.
Expectantly, executive producer Jay-Z chops it up on the new record, “100$ Bill.” Every song on the album will be featured in the movie, so I am curious as to how they will incorporate this one. Take a listen for yourself and feel free to give your feedback.
Check out Jay-Z’s discussion with BlackTree Media on the executive producing the film.
On how he came to become executive producer:
“Baz [Luhrmann] and Leo[nardo DiCaprio] came to a recording session while we were at the Mercer Hotel finishing up Watch The Throne, and I was working on a song called “No Church In The Wild.” And I was working on it while they were in the room. And we start playing some music, and we just talk about collaborating because I was collaborating with Kanye [West] at the time, and we just talk about the act and the art of collaborating, and I guess that was the seed of the ideas.”
“Timeless music is timeless music.”
