Game's soundtrack gets digital release in three volumes
The soundtrack for Grand Theft Auto V has been released on iTunes.
The computer game boasts a high-profile soundtrack, including 17 different radio stations curated by the likes of Flying Lotus, Wavves and Twin Shadow, and as Pitchfork reports, it has now been made available in three volumes which can be purchased either individually or as one bundle.
The first volume features original music and contributions from artists including Flying Lotus, Twin Shadow, Wavves, HEALTH, A$AP Rocky and Tyler, The Creator, while the second volume contains the game’s original score which was originally a collaboration between video game composer Tangerine Dream, The Alchemist, Oh No and video game composer Woody Jackson and has been mixed into an album by DJ Shadow.
The third and final volume, meanwhile, includes tracks from the 17 radio stations featured in the game, including contributions from Flying Lotus, Jai Paul and Toro Y Moi. For the full tracklisting of each volume, visit Rockstargames.com.
Grand Theft Auto V was in development for five years and cost a reported £170 million to make, but the game has been a huge success following its release – earlier this week, it became the ‘fastest selling entertainment product ever’ after shifting £1bn worth of copies across the world in just three days, and has already sold 1.57 million units in the UK alone.
