On the heels of the fourth trailer
and a bit of a clean up from leaked audio on the European PSN, Rockstar has opened up a little on the GTA V soundtrack
. If you missed the retweets on Twitter
here's the scoop.
First up, the music from yesterday's trailer is "Sleepwalking" by The Chain Gang of 1974
which can be heard above.

Next up are some articles from Pitchfork and Rolling Stone. Pitchfork spills the beans on on FlyLo FM
hosted by the one and only Flying Lotus and features many of his songs and GTA fan Tyler the Creator too. A full playlist is included in the article.
Rolling Stone had a chance to sit down with soundtrack supervisor Ivan Pavlovich
and get some insight to the creation of GTA V's soundtrack including a snippet that the game has "somewhere in the proximity of 20 movies worth of score"
which accompanies players outside of vehicle radios. It was created by noted composer Tangerine Dream in collaboration with Woody Jackson (Red Dead Redemption
, Max Payne 3, LA Noire) and L.A. hip-hop producers Alchemist and Oh No.
Rockstar describes the soundtrack as such:
"Designed to encompass the breadth of the modern L.A. music scene, GTAV's soundtrack features 15 music stations, two stations of talk radio and 240 licensed songs - covering everything from unforgettable classic hip-hop with long-time Rockstar collaborator DJ Pooh, to the underground Mexican sounds of East LOS FM and the modern beatmaker scene courtesy of FlyLo FM, with new and exclusive tracks from both Flying Lotus and self-confessed GTA fan Tyler the Creator."
Confirmed Radio Stations and DJs are as follows:
- Los Santos Rock Radio - Kenny Loggins? Mentioned for Classic Rock station
