GTAV Soundtrack Interviews and Details... Plus "Sleepwalking" by The Chain Gang of 1974 from the Official Trailer

Posted on August 30 2013, 2:18pm | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Music, Games

In the wake of yesterday's GTAV Official Trailer debut, we heard from a number of fans asking about the music featured in it. The song is "Sleepwalking" from electronic band The Chain Gang of 1974. Have a listen to it via the SoundCloud player embedded above, and read on for more details about the Grand Theft Auto V soundtrack.

Rolling Stone and Pitchfork have also published the first official interviews detailing the Grand Theft Auto V soundtrack and score earlier this week. 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.


Cara Delevigne took to Instagram to confirm her role as Non-Stop-Pop FM’s DJ.

The game also includes over 20 hours of original, dynamic score 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.
 
Check out samplings below from five of the stations you'll hear as you’re cruising across Los Santos and Blaine County in just a few short weeks’ time and stay tuned for more to be unveiled.

      I know this is an old old thread, but I wanted to drop a line saying how awesome that Jessy Bulba track is, you guys picked a diamond with that. The Hics track as well. I was always impressed with the soundtracks going back to GTA III. You've raised the bar with each game, and this one is no exception.

        This version of Sleepwalking sounds beauiful, even better than the original, I heard it on Radio Mirror Park, does anyone know where this version of the song is? I love it so much!!! :D

          The rock radio station kinda bummed me out. The only good song in my opinion is Photograph by Def Leppard. All the other songs sounds more like pop rock. I was hoping for a nice selection of songs like Radio x had to offer from GTA San Andreas. Oh well, Beggars can't be choosers.

          The rock station selection of songs makes me feel more like I am trapped inside of a elevator and not inside of my personal car.

                          dear R* will there be any chance that instead of listening to the radio stations, could we stream the music from our consoles!? that was such an amazing feature in San Andreas for the p.c
