Sia's 'Great Gatsby' Song, 'Kill And Run,' Is The Lastest Release From Anticipated Soundtrack

Australian pop and jazz songstress Sia has joined the medley of artists who've unveiled their recordings for the new "Great Gatsby" soundtrack, releasing a beautiful, haunting ballad called "Kill and Run."

Sia's "Gatsby" song is last on the 14-track album that's produced by Jay-Z. We've also heard songs from The xx, Lana Del Ray, Nero and Florence + the Machine.

Reminiscent of Adele's Oscar-winning "Skyfall," "Kill and Run" sounds like a hybrid between the dark eccentricity of Fiona Apple and the jazz balladry of Amy Winehouse, with its orchestra-heavy ambiance seeming like a fitting conclusion to the highly anticipated soundtrack.

Though she's been making music since 1997, Sia is best known for her recent collaborations with David Geutta, on the popular song "Titanium," and Flo Rida, on "Wild Ones."

Artists who are still on tap to debut their "Gatsby" songs include Jack White, Gotye, will.i.am and Beyonce, who recorded an already contentious remake of Winehouse's "Back in Black" with Andre 3000. The full soundtrack will be released May 7, and the Baz Luhrmann-directed movie, which Jay-Z also produced, hits theaters May 10.
