Over the past few months there has been a ton of buzz around Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming adaption of The Great Gatsby. I must admit, especially after seeing the trailer…I was completely sucked in. I became even MORE excited yesterday when The xx released this original new song written for the film. “Together” is yet another wonderful addition to the already amazing soundtrack stacked with original songs from Lana Del Rey and Florence + The Machine. The song has that signature smooth intensity that fans of The xx have come to know and love with some build up near the end that brings it straight into the cinematic, blown out world Luhrmann has created for this new project. Can’t wait to see the film and hear the song in context! How about you?
