When Interscope Records released The Great Gatsby soundtrack sampler, I mentioned a highlight was the contribution from Florence + The Machine. The record label just made the entire track available and it’s even more amazing than I imagined.
“Over The Love” is a smoldering track that builds to powerful closing crescendo. Reportedly, the song is sung from Daisy Buchanan’s (Carey Mulligan) point of view. The track is littered with multiple references from F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel. Florence Welch’s evocative signature style is absolute heaven on the theatrical track. I can’t wait to see how Baz Luhrmann incorporates it in the film. Take a listen below.
