Thanks to Rockstar Games, you can pop over to the [surl=http://www.rockstargames.com/lanoire/features/soundtrack]official L.A Noire soundtrack page[/surl] and find out all about the making of the in-game score as well as streaming several tunes from the new game.
Here’s the Theme to L.A. Noire to get you in the mood – it’s been composed by Andrew Hale, who used to be in Sade’s band.
If you’d prefer something more …modern, then check out the entire L.A. Noire Verve Remixed Project EP, which boasts six jazz classics, re-vamped by some of today’s best DJs, remixers and producers.
Both records will be available to purchase on May 17th (that’s technically “tomorrow!”), from “all major digital outlets” – by which they mean “iTunes and some other places”.
Now that you’ve got your musical accompaniment, isn’t it time you did a little light reading? The third short story from the collection has been released, and you can catch up with See The Woman at publisher [surl=http://www.mulhollandbooks.com/2011/05/12/see-the-woman/]Mulholland Books website[/surl].
It’s by Lawrence Block, who has just launched his new novel [surl=http://www.mulhollandbooks.com/books/a-drop-of-the-hard-stuff/]A Drop of the Hard Stuff[/surl], which sounds pretty awesome too.
According to Rockstar, See The Woman is “a poignant and painful look at domestic abuse and its harrowing aftermath as a retired L.A. cop recounts the story that has haunted and colored his life.”
In case you missed it, [surl=http://www.rockstargames.com/lanoire/news/15891/hell-of-an-affair-by-duane-swierczynski-todays-selection-from-la.html]Duane Swierczynski’s Hell of an Affair[/surl] was also posted last week, alongside [surl=http://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/15761/todays-la-noire-original-short-story-release-whats-in-a-name-by-.html]What’s in a Name by Jonathan Santlofer[/surl].
L.A. Noire launches on May 17th in the United States, and on May 20th in the rest of the world. We’re expecting productivity to drop by the end of the week.
