Lana Del Rey Previews ‘Young + Beautiful’ From ‘Great Gatsby’ Soundtrack

‘The Great Gatsby’ is shaping up to be an epic film, and the soundtrack, scored by Jay-Z himself, is following suit. In addition to wife Beyonce‘s cover of ‘Back to Black’ by Amy Winehouse, Lana Del Rey contributed a track called ‘Young + Beautiful’ — and based on the preview, it’s a swelling, emotional number unlike most of what we’re used to hearing from the polarizing beauty. She may win over her naysayers after all!

The snippet begins with a bit of a sparse arrangement as Del Rey sings, “Hot summer nights, mid-July, when you and I would forever lie / The crazy days, the city lights, the way you play with me like a child.” As her voice crescendos, so does the music as she wails, “Will you still love me when I’m no longer young and beautiful?

The song is a wistful, heartwrenching yet hopeful one about young love. It’s somewhat reminiscent of Del Rey’s unreleased track ‘Never Let Me Go’ — if it’s not a huge hit, it will likely be a sleeper and fan favorite. In ‘Young + Beautiful,’ the title couldn’t be more appropriate for what the song itself is shaping up to sound like.
