I am now genuinely excited about May 17th. I wasn’t before now because nothing really significant was scheduled, unless you count the release of Rockstar’s L.A. Noire and let’s be honest: I don’t. However, Rockstar has revealed that not one but two albums encompassing the music of L.A. Noire will come out on the same day. Now we’re on to something.
The L.A. Noire Official Soundtrack will cover the music used in the game and is contributed by Andrew Hale (credited on the score of The Getaway), Woody Jackson (credited on the score of Red Dead Redemption) and many others. Releasing alongside the Official Soundtrack is L.A. Noire: Remixed, a small collection of songs from the game remixed by various artists in a collaboration with Verve Records.
There are no pricing details, but both albums will be available digitally via iTunes on the same day the game drops. Hopefully we can expect a physical release of the albums at some point, but I doubt it. Now I can finally stop pretending to be excited about the release of L.A. Noire and get hyped about its 1940s inspired music.
