Prince, Lady Gaga to feature on 'The Great Gatsby' soundtrack?
Cast member reveals pair are writing songs for Leonardo DiCaprio movie
Prince and Lady Gaga are reportedly writing songs for the official soundtrack to the Hollywood adaptation of The Great Gatsby.
The movie, which is directed by Baz Luhrmann, stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan and will be released in May of next year. The soundtrack information was revealed by cast member Adelaide Clemens, who will play the part of Catherine Wilson in the film.
Speaking to Indiewire about the names linked to the movie, 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.”
The Great Gatsby was originally due to be released on Christmas Day of this year, but its release date has been pushed back by six months. The trailer for the film was released earlier this year, with Jay-Z and Kanye West's 'No Church In The Wild' featuring heavily throughout.
On September 22, Prince joined hip-hop and soul singer Mary J Blige on stage at the iHeartRadio music festival in Las Vegas. Dressed in yellow bell-bottom trousers, a flame-print shirt and gold metallic glasses, he guested on a cover of Chaka Khan's 'Sweet Thing'.
