‘The Great Gatsby’ Confirms Composers Jay-Z and Jeymes Samuel

The Bullitts band founder Jeymes Samuel has confirmed his involvement in scoring The Great Gatsby adaptation. He is working alongside Jay-Z in creating new music for Baz Luhrmann's latest film. Take a look at the message Samuel sent out to his Twitter followers.

It isn't known how extensive their involvement in crafting this score will be, since Craig Armstrong (The Incredible Hulk, Ray) is currently credited as the composer. Perhaps Jay-Z and Jeymes Samuel are working on new original songs for the soundtrack, although that has not been confirmed. Jay-Z and Kanye West's song "Church in the Wild" was featured in the first trailer that debuted back in May.

The Great Gatsby was released May 10th, 2013.
