Many have been waiting for info on the L.A. Noire soundtrack to be revealed and now, it is so. Check out info about the music you'll be jamming out swinging to in 1947 Los Angeles. Today, Rockstar is proud to announce two official L.A. Noire soundtrack releases, the L.A. Noire Official Soundtrack and L.A. Noire: Remixed.

Announcing Two Original Albums From L.A. Noire. Left: L.A. Noire: Remixed, a six track EP featuring jazz standards re-interpreted by some of today's most acclaimed DJs and producers. Right: L.A. Noire The Official Soundtrack, an original orchestral score, along with modern takes on the classical torch songs of the era.

The L.A. Noire Official Soundtrack was inspired by the sweeping orchestral scores of the great films of the 1940s. This all-original score was recorded in London’s legendary Abbey Road Studios and composed by Andrew Hale, of the band Sade and Sweetback and whose credits include scores for such films as Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. The soundtrack also features modern takes on the classic torch songs of the period. Three original vocal recordings were created for the soundtrack, all produced and written by Stephen Coates (of The Real Tuesday Weld) and featuring the guest vocals of Claudia Brucken (of Propaganda). Additional music was composed for the score by Woody Jackson, who won multiple awards for his work with Bill Elm on the original score of Red Dead Redemption.

Players will also hear over 30 classic licensed jazz tracks in the game itself, including songs from such greats as Billie Holiday, Dizzy Gillespie, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, and Thelonious Monk.

L.A. Noire Remixed is the fruit of a partnership with Verve Records that provides a modern take on the music found throughout the world of L.A. Noire. This unique EP is a collection of six jazz standards re-interpreted by some of today's most acclaimed DJs, producers and remixers, including Dave Sitek, DJ Premier, and Truth & Soul.

L.A. Noire Remixed and the L.A. Noire Official Soundtrack will be available for purchase on iTunes on May 17th, and look for song previews and additional information to be released at www.rockstargames.com/lanoire next week.
