Last month saw the release of new, enhanced versions of Grand Theft Auto V for Playstation and Xbox One
, and the PC version is due out early next year. To celebrate this momentous occasion, Rock Star Games is dropping a limited edition box set featuring loads of great music heard in the game, and we're stoked to be giving away three copies.
Available tomorrow (Dec. 9) as a three-CD and a six-LP vinyl set, The Music of Grand Theft Auto V comprises 59 killer songs from the likes of A$AP Rocky, Twin Shadow, Wavves, Yeasayer, and Tyler, The Creator. Also included is the original GTAV score, composed by Tangerine Dream, Woody Jackson, The Alchemist and Oh No and mixed by DJ Shadow.
The vinyl edition comes with a full-color booklet and an exclusive lithograph poster, all housed in a sweet-looking box. The CD collection, meanwhile, arrives with a branded Grand Theft Auto V gold brick-shaped USB drive, artwork, and a poster. That's all wrapped in a special die-cut package.
Rock Star is only making 5,000 of these sets, and for your chance to win one, all you've got to do is share this post on Facebook and tag @massappealrecs, @nylonguysmagazine, and #GTAV. Also, tell us which of the soundtrack's original songs is your favorite. Our top five picks are below. You have until 5 p.m. EST on Friday, December 12, at which time we'll randomly select three (3) winners. If we pick you, you'll have your choice of the vinyl or the CD set.
Our Picks for the Top Five GTAV Original Songs
Twin Shadow, “Old Love/New Love”: It’s house with a heart—more of the thinking (and feeling) man’s retro-pop we’ve come to expect from George Lewis Jr.
Gangrene, “Bassheads”: Alchemist and Oh No join forces for the type of hip-hop banger that makes you want to steal a car and wile out in a consequence-free environment. Perfect for GTAV, in other words.
Flying Lotus, “Stonecutters”: Retro and futuristic, this trippy groove odyssey plays like an early-‘80s Jheri-curl electro-funk tune reimagined for whatever dimension Flying Lotus calls home.
OFF! “What’s Next”: “Who’s gonna save your world?” asks Keith Morris, leader of this boisterous Cali hardcore supergroup. “Plan B doesn’t exist!” It’s 2:09 of gunning it toward uncertainty, consequences be damned.
Age of Consent, “Colours”: This London goth-pop duo presumably takes its name from the classic New Order tune, and “Colours” is dark, angular dance nugget straight out of ’82.
