Rockstar Opens the Airwaves and Details GTA V Radio Stations

After yesterday’s release of the Grand Theft Auto V official trailer, Rockstar Games released a preview of the radio stations and music that will be found within the game when it is released in just a few weeks.

The song heard in the trailer was also revealed after the company had a lot of requests for the track title. That song is called “Sleepwalking” from electronic band The Chain Gang of 1974. The track is embedded on Rockstar’s website.

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. Genres covered in the game ranger 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.

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 the Rockstar release page for samples from five of the radio stations you’ll find as you cruise Vinewood Boulevard.

More information about the sountrack and song details should be revealed soon.
