Beyonce and OutKast rapper Andre 3000 have recorded a cover of the late Amy Winehouse’s ‘Back To Black’.

The cover will feature on the soundtrack for Baz Luhrmann’s forthcoming adaptaion of F Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel ‘The Great Gatsby’. It is the second time the pair have worked together, following 'Party' from Beyoncé's latest album '4'.

Speaking about the cover to E! Online, an Interscope source said: “It’s a very different take on ‘Back To Black’.”

It has already been confirmed that Jay-Z will be executive producer for the soundtrack and is expected to contribute new material to the film. Other stars rumoured to feature on the soundtrack include Prince, Lady Gaga and Lana Del Rey.

‘The Great Gatsby’ is in cinemas from May 17 and stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire.

Beyoncé’s next album currently has no release date. The singer recently revealed a new track ‘Bow Down/I Been On’, which will feature on the record.
