Listen: The xx's Contribution to The Great Gatsby, "Together"

The soundtrack for The Great Gatsby is getting just as much hype as the movie, produced by Jay Z and featuring tracks from Beyonce, Lana Del Ray and even Hova himself. Granted it does have potential stinkers from Gotye, and Fergie, but if it brings us great tracks like the "Together" from The xx, well I'll [try to] stop complaining.

The plucking of the violin lays the groundwork for a strikingly eerie song, then eventually turned  graceful by the orchestration near the end of the song. Knowing Baz Luhrmann's previous works, I'm incredibly excited to see how he uses this song in the movie.
