Prince and Gaga to soundtrack Luhrman’s Gatsby, maybe

Artist News Releases

Prince

Prince and Lady Gaga may or may not be recording music to feature on the soundtrack of Baz Luhrmann’s screen adaptation of ‘The Great Gatsby’. Or so says one of the 3D feature’s stars, actress Adelaide Clemens, who hinted about it at a press conference this past weekend.

Asked by Indiewire about the movie, whose premiere has been set back from its original December release to a tbc date in spring 2013, Clemens said: “They have some new music that’s going to be added to the film. Some pretty huge artists have approached Baz and are writing songs for the film, and I don’t think Warner Bros are going to turn down Prince and Lady Gaga knocking down your door”.

“I don’t know if I’m allowed to say that”, she added.

No, she probably wasn’t. But it does seem likely that, Prince/Gaga tracks or no Prince/Gaga tracks, Luhrman’s ‘Gatsby’ will have a contemporary-sounding score. I mean, its official trailer speaks – and practically yells – for itself:
