LA Noire gets two official soundtracks


Official and Remixed versions on offer

Rockstar Games has announced L.A. Noire: Remixed and the L.A. Noire Official Soundtrack, to be available in May.

L.A. Noire: Remixed is the result of a partnership with Rockstar Games and Verve Records that provides a modern take on 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.

In addition to the remix project, 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, whose credits include Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and The Getaway. The soundtrack also features modern takes on the classic torch songs of the period produced and written by Stephen Coates (The Real Tuesday Weld) with guest vocals by Claudia Brucken (Propaganda) and additional music composed by Woody Jackson.

The music of L.A. Noire plays a critical role in the game, as musical cues help notify players where additional clues can be found, or when a crime scene has been completely scoured for evidence. Players will also hear over 32 classic jazz tracks through the world in L.A. Noire, including such greats as Billie Holiday, Dizzy Gillespie, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong and Thelonious Monk.

L.A. Noire: Remixed and the L.A. Noire Official Soundtrack will be available for purchase on iTunes on May 17, alongside the release of the game on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
