There's a lot to be happy about when it comes to Baz Luhrmann's upcoming film The Great Gatsby. Gatsby on screen! Leo DiCaprio! But at Mstarz, easily the most exciting thing about the coming film is the Jay-Z helmed soundtrack. Now there's a sample to make us all the more crazy about the upcoming release. Listen for snippets of tracks from Sia, Lana Del Ray, Emeli Sande, Florence + The Machine and many more.

Will.i.am surprises with a decent bopping tune to kick off the soundtrack.
The less said about Fergie's track, the better.
Lana Del Ray sounds like LDR so, if you're into that, it's awesome.
Same goes for Florence.
The Brian Ferry Orchestra have made a living off of swing tunes, so they are obviously fantastic.
Coco O's "Where the Wind Blows" will appeal to fans of "Coin Operated Boy."
Emeli Sande's cover of "Crazy in Love" may be the greatest thing I've ever heard.
The xx keep it bleak and spacious with "Together."
Gotye's contribution might surprise people who only know him from the monster hit "Somebody That I Used to Know."
Jack White is as solid as ever.
Sia and Nero end the album on an interesting, dreamy note.
Here's a breakdown of the teaser via Idolator:
1. Bang Bang - will.i.am (0:01)
2. A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got) - Fergie, Q Tip & GoonRock (0:31)

4. Love Is The Drug - Bryan Ferry with The Bryan Ferry Orchestra (1:32)
5. Over The Love - Florence & The Machine (2:03)
6. Where The Wind Blows - Coco O. of Quadron (2:33)
7. Crazy in Love - Emeli Sandé and The Bryan Ferry Orchestra (3:04)

Noticeably absent is Andre 3000 and Beyonce's "Back in Black" cover that can be heard throughout the trailer. I'm guessing they are saving that one up for a big reveal closer to the movie's release date.
