Announcing L.A. Noire Soundtrack Releases: Official OST & L.A. Noire: Remixed

Posted on May 6 2011, 4:25pm | Author: R* W | Filed Under: Music, Games

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.

Today, we are proud to announce two official L.A. Noire soundtrack releases, the L.A. Noire Official Soundtrack and L.A. Noire: Remixed.

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 next week.

        Really looking forward to the music this time round. I love jazz and Verve is the ideal label for the game, Verve remixed albums are usually great as well. Nice touch R*!

            @ahetFIN Yes, if you’re uploading cutscenes from the game or any video with spoilers about cases – there’s a good chance they will be removed, so please don’t bother. We really want to make sure the game experience from case to case is not ruined for anyone.

              Rockstar, you removed many GTA IV videos because they had some cutscenes. Are you going to do the same with L.A. Noire? It would be nice to know so I won't waste my time on uploading videos that just get removed.

                @FrozenOne-94 Sure!

                @emmi18176860 Best advice is to stay tuned to the Newswire all this week and after the game releases, more to come.

                @Andrew2812 @Timmehor Xbox LIVE Gold will not be required to download pre-order bonus content, a free membership works just fine. If you're having issues connecting your Xbox 360 to the internet, we recommend visiting for help.

                    some questions:
                    1. aren't you guys going to release a feature page about the so called unassigned cases - all what you can do beside the main story - hopefully such a site is coming with all the info we are looking foward to;
                    2. how long time do you guys think does it take to complete a case and the full game, I really want to know that;
                    3. if the main story is over - can you still play the game just like in rdr or gta iv;
                    4. will there be a map of la 1947 with a poster on the back within the game package; (last time you I asked this you guys said that you don't know already but this time you should know - i mean the release is just a week ahead)
                    plz try to answer these questions
                    big thanks from emmi18176860
                    LA NOIRE is an awesome piece of art!!!

                          Thank you very much for your answer to my question, I know I'm not supposed to put my questions into the comment section and I am aware of that we are a little bit annoying with all the questions so I really do appreciate the time you've taken to answer all of our questions.

                            @Timmehor @Andrew2812 If your pre-order comes with bonus content, it will be available as a download at launch.

                            @FrozenOne-94 Police vehicles will have the option of turning on an audible siren that other vehicles ahead of Phelps will be able to hear, alerting them to make way.

                            @PowercomBADAZZ Keep in mind that pre-order content will be available as DLC at some point after release, we recommend checking the pre-order page again to check out what's offered in your region:

                                Will we get to use sirens when driving a squad car because on the L.A. Noire artwork I have seen cop cars with a siren on the roof but in the game itself I didn't spot any cop car with a siren?

                                  R* said that theres not going to be any new videos before the game comes out, they said to me to check the site today for some news of the game.
