Can't listen to song while recording guitar on Scarlett 2i2

I'm having trouble recording guitar on top of some music I've made. I'm using a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2.

See this screenshot:

Note that my "Audio Device" is set to "ASIO4ALL v2." While this is set up, I can hear the music I've written. I can also hear the guitar parts while my audio settings are set up this way. The problem is I can't record my guitar while the setting are like this.


In order to record guitar, I need to change the "Audio Device" setting to "FOCUSRITE USB ASIO." See screenshot:

The problem is, I can't hear the music I've written while this setting is on. Obviously, it's hard to play in time when I can't hear the backing track. 

How can I listen to the track I made AND record guitar at the same time?


Thanks in advance for any help!
