The Roaring Twenties sound gets revamped to accompany Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of F Scott Fitzgerald’s classic American novel, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire and hit cinemas on May 16.

Beyonce & Andre 3000 head up the soundtrack with a haunting take on Amy Winehouse’s Back To Black, as Emeli Sande and the Bryan Ferry Orchestra put a twist on Beyonce’s Crazy In Love, and U2’s Love Is Blindness gets updated by Jack White.

There are powerful vocal performances from Florence And The Machine and Lana Del Rey, fitting neatly in between serene tracks from Gotye and The xx.

There’s definitely a fluidity and consistency here, making this a swinging, jazzy, joy that will have you doing the Charleston involuntarily.
