We already knew The Great Gatsby would be incredible, but Lana Del Rey‘s official theme song makes it even better.

Lana Del Rey and Her Boyfriend Cover Nancy Sinatra’s ‘Summer Wine’

The slow, haunting tune, “Young & Beautiful,”  is a heartbreaking ballad suited perfectly for the on-screen story about impossible love. Lana wrote the track along with the film’s director, Baz Luhrmann.

The Great Gatsby soundtrack, which also features Beyonce and Florence + the Machine, is set to be released on May 7, just three days before the Leonardo DiCaprio film hits theaters.

Are you looking forward to the movie or the soundtrack more?
