Lana Del Rey – Young & Beautiful (From ‘The Great Gatsby’ Soundtrack)
Lana Del Rey‘s lush, girlishly tortured voice recalls those of great singers in years past, harkening back to those glitzy, roaring decades. It makes sense that the singer would be featured on the soundtrack of one of the more anticipated films of 2013, especially considering that her contribution, “Young & Beautiful,” fittingly parallels many themes within F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby itself. Here we find Del Rey comfortably crooning a question of faithful love and, within the four-minute piece, one can’t help but wonder if there’s anyone more fitting to do so. Enjoy the track below.
