Today Rockstar Games revealed two music collections inspired by L.A. Noire. L.A. Noire: Remixed and the L.A. Noire Official Soundtrack will be released on iTunes on May 17th.

The official soundtrack is an original score recorded in Abbey Road Studios. It was composed by Andrew Hale, who also worked on Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and The Getaway. It features orchestra scores not unlike those found in films from the 1940s. There are also some "modern takes on the classic torch songs of the period" produced and written by Stephen Coates (The Real Tuesday Weld), with Claudia Brucken (Propaganda) providing guest vocals. Woody Elms, who received numerous awards for his work with Red Dead Redemption's original score, composed additional music for the game.

If you're looking for something to dance to, you can pick up L.A. Noire Remixed. Remixed, a collaboration between Rockstar Games and Verve Records, features six "reinterpretations" of jazz classics:
  • Elle Fitzgerald & Louis Jordan – “Stone Cold Dead in the Market” (Ticklah remix)
  • Lionel Hampton & His Orchestra – “Hey-Ba-Ba-Re-Bop” (Midnight Sun remix)
  • Dinah Washington – “A Slick Chick (On the Mellow Side)” (Maximum Balloon remix)
  • Louis Jordan – “Ain’t Nobody Here But Us Chickens” (DJ Premier remix)
  • Gene Krupa – “Sing Sing Sing” (Truth & Soul Remix)
  • Billie Holiday – “That Ol’ Devil Called Love” (Moodymann remix)
L.A. Noire will feature over 32 classic jazz tracks by artists like Dizzy Gillespie, Ella Fitzgerald, and Thelonious Monk. In-game music cues players on where to find additional clues, and when all evidence has been found at a crime scene.
