As an English Literature student, I am naturally very excited about Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming The Great Gatsby film adaptation. However, as a music lover, there are plenty of reasons to be excited to, as the film comes hand in hand with an incredible soundtrack, featuring songs from some of the world’s biggest artist including Jay-Z, Beyonce, Lana Del Rey, The xx, Jack White, Sia (!!!!!) and Florence + the Machine. Although most of the songs are yet be released, Florence + the Machine’s addition to this titanic soundtrack has arrived in the shape of Over the Love, a predictably huge offering from Miss Welch. Spine-tingling ferocious, Over the Love is a staggeringly powerful ballad that sets the bar exceptionally high for all the other artists on the soundtrack. I cannot wait to hear them all.
