New Grand Theft Auto 5 Music: Album By The Alchemist & Oh No Will Debut On A Radio Station In PC Version
Grand Theft Auto's radio stations are a beloved part of the franchise, offering real tunes to go alongside the zany commentary, and new music is coming to Grand Theft Auto 5.
Rockstar announced The Alchemist and Oh No Present: Welcome to Los Santos today, a "genre-spanning" collection of new tracks that will debut with the PC version of the game on April 14. A full standalone album release to follow on April 21st from Mass Appeal Records.
The Alchemist & Oh No were composers of the original score, and have used those tracks to inspire the new music. Plenty of guests contribute to the new album, including Earl Sweatshirt, Little Dragon, Phantogram, Freddie Gibbs, Popcaan, Killer Mike, Tunde Adebimpe and Samuel T. Herring (from Future Islands).
An The Alchemist and Oh No-hosted radio station called 'The Lab' will be added to the air waves in the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V to broadcast the new music. The full standalone album will be available for digital download and at retail in both CD and vinyl releases.
Vanity Fair has an in-depth article about the album after speaking with its creators--check it out and listen to the single Play it Cool.
