No matter how The Great Gatsby does at the box office when it finally arrives in theaters next month, it’s eclectic, star-studded soundtrack is already a newsmaker.

Curated by Jay-Z, the Gatsby soundtrack includes tracks by Jay himself, Beyoncé, Jack White, Fergie, Sia, Lana Del Rey, the xx and more. Twelve of the 14 total core tracks are currently available in snippet form on YouTube, which you can stream below.

Highlights include Florence Welch wailing on the track “Over the Love” and the swing version of Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love” delivered by Emeli Sandé.

There’s also the already-released “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody” by Fergie, Q-Tip, and GoonRock, which must be ironically titled given the fate of one Gatsby‘s main characters.

Listen to these, as well as Jack White’s cover of U2’s “Love Is Blindness” (as featured in the trailer to the film), a spin below:

The key moments seem to be the slower ones, especially Sia’s spooky “Kill and Run” and Lana Del Rey’s dark, blustery “Young and Beautiful.”

The Great Gatsby was originally due to arrive in theaters last Christmas, but will now be released on May 10. The soundtrack will hit store shelves on May 7.
