Let out that baited breath — the wait for Lana Del Rey's "Young & Beautiful" is over.

The much-anticipated track has arrived in full from the soundtrack to Baz Luhrmann's upcoming adaptation of The Great Gatsby, which will also feature music from Jay-ZBeyoncé, will.i.am, André 3000, Jack White, the xx and Florence and the Machine.

In the extended trailer for the remake of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel, "Young & Beautiful" soars as the clip chronicles the budding love between protagonist Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Daisy Buchanan (Carey Mulligan).

"Hot summer nights, mid-July, when you and I would forever lie," Rey croons. "The crazy days, the city lights, the way you'd play with me like a child."

Then the track climbs to crescendo: "Will you still love me when I'm no longer young and beautiful? / Will you still love me when I got nothing but my aching soul? / I know you will, I know you will / I know that you will / Will you still love me when I'm no longer beautiful?"

The Great Gatsby soundtrack — executive produced by Jay-Z, who partnered with the film's composer, Craig Armstrong, and music supervisor, Anton Monsted — is set to hit shelves on May 7, just days before the film opens on May 10.
