Beyonce will put her own twist on Amy Winehouse's Back To Black

Beyonce is to sing Amy Winehouse's hit Back To Black for the Great Gatsby soundtrack.

The Single Ladies songstress has teamed up with OutKast's Andre 3000 for the duet, which would be featured on the soundtrack of Baz Luhrmann's period picture, reported E! News.

"It's a very different take on Back To Black," said a spokesperson for record company Interscope Records.

It is their second collaboration, following their work on her 2011 single Party.

Grammy-winning rapper Jay-Z, Beyonce's husband, has collaborated with the filmmaker in the role of executive producer to create the music for the big-screen adaptation of F Scott Fitzgerald's novel, which stars Leonardo, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire.

He will also perform some of his own music on the soundtrack.

Jay-Z has hinted he will add a touch of the present-day to the film, which is set in the Roaring 20s, saying: "It's ripe for experimentation and ready to be interpreted with a modern twist."

The Great Gatsby will be released in cinemas on May 17, after its world premiere at the opening night film of the Cannes Film Festival on May 15.
