A compilation of music from GTA V has been released on iTunes today. Rather than simply a copy of the radio stations, as per previous soundtrack releases, this compilation features three volumes of game related music.
Volume 1: Original music – the first volume is a collect of brand new music from a varied array of artists including Wavves, Twin Shadow, Tyler, The Creator and The Chain Gang of 1974’s “Sleepwalking”, which was featured in the game’s original trailer:
Volume 2: The score – GTA V is the first in the series to feature its own original dynamic music score, which kicks in as a response to the player’s actions during missions and while free roaming in the expansive open world. For this volume, DJ Shadow remixes the game’s musical score, featuring music from legendary composer Woody Jackson and renowned hip-hop producer The Alchemist.
Volume 3: The soundtrack – taking a sampling of music from the 17 in-game radio stations, volume 3 contains 19 songs for you to listen to on the go. If you’re listening to them in your real car, make sure you remember the boundaries between gaming and reality – we wouldn’t want anyone getting carried away and taking a shortcut across the pavement!
Each volume can be purchased separately for £7.99, or the entire compilation is available for the discounted price of £17.99.
