Florence and the Machine - Over The Love
From what will undoubtably be the most unusual soundtrack in recent memory. It's unusual, in that it is still a roaring 20's period piece, but instead of the requisite big band ragtime type score, we are being treated to tracks by Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Will.i.am, Fergie, Q-Tip, Bryan Ferry, Lana Del Rey, Coco O, Emeli Sandé, The XX, Goyte, and even Jack White doing a cover of U2's Love Is Blindness. Yeah...it has us intrigued too. Above is the beautiful Florence and the Machine contribution to this potential hot mess, titled Over The Love. We read a review that equated the soundtrack to a hard-drive crash, wherein you are only able to recover 14 completely unrelated songs. Of note, it was selected, arranged and produced by Jay-Z, so there must be method to this apparent madness. Album is scheduled to drop on May 7th.
