Song Of The Week #51

Quite recently I managed to catch a showing of The Great Gatsby in cinemas, and must say the soundtrack did not disappoint.

Together – The xx

The Great Gatsby

Apparently Baz Luhrmann and his right-hand music man Anton Monsted have been massive fans of the xx for a while now.When Luhrmann and Monsted approached them regarding some musical contribution, they were completely fine with using a song out of the band’s (at the time) new album – and then they were pleasantly surprised to find the xx throw them this pretty tune out of nowhere.

As stated by Monsted, they were so happy with the tune it’s basically “peppered throughout the fabric of the underscore.”

Together is the tenth track on the soundtrack album to Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby.
