‘GTA V’ Soundtrack Released on iTunesBy: Sean Patterson - September 24, 2013
Looking past all of the controversy blamed on the recent release of Grand Theft Auto V, the game itself is a technical accomplishment and very well could be the final great current-generation console game. Numerous perfect and near-perfect reviews for the game highlight its incredible scope and beautiful visual style, but GTA fans know that all of that would be a bit less without the varied soundtrack.
Developer Rockstar today (finally) released the soundtrack for GTA V in the iTunes store. Actually, Rockstar released three separate albums related to GTA V: the Soundtrack, the Score, and the Original Music from the game. Each costs $10 separately, or they can all be bought together for $25.
The Soundtrack features the music players will be most familiar with – the songs found on the game’s various radio stations. The album includes 19 tracks with a bit from all of GTA V‘s radio stations, including songs from Flying Lotus, Bootsy Collins, and Bob Seger.
The Score album has all of the music that dynamically plays during the game’s many missions. According to Rockstar, the music was composed by the band Tangerine Dream; hip-hop producers The Alchemist and Oh No; and composer Woody Jackson.
The Original Music album contains the songs written specifically for GTA V, including the song “Sleepwalking” by The Chain Gang of 1974. That song was featured in the GTA V launch trailer released back in August.
