Announcing Two Original Albums From L.A. Noire.  Left:  L.A. Noire: Remixed, a six track EP featuring jazz standards re-interpreted by some of today's most acclaimed DJs and producers.  Right: L.A. Noire The Official Soundtrack, an original orchestral score, along with modern takes on the  classical torch songs of the era.

We are proud to announce two official  L.A. Noire soundtrack releases, the  L.A. Noire Official Soundtrack and  L.A. Noire: Remixed.

The  L.A. Noire Official Soundtrack was inspired by the sweeping orchestral scores of the great films of the 1940s. This all-original score was recorded in London’s legendary  Abbey Road Studios and composed by Andrew Hale,  of the band Sade and  Sweetback and whose credits include scores for such films as  Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. The soundtrack also features modern takes on the classic torch songs of the period. Three original vocal recordings were created for the soundtrack, all produced and written by  Stephen Coates (of The Real Tuesday Weld) and featuring the guest vocals of  Claudia Brucken (of  Propaganda). Additional music was composed for the score by  Woody Jackson, who won multiple awards for his work with Bill Elm on the original score of Red Dead Redemption.

Players will also hear over 30 classic licensed jazz tracks in the game itself, including songs from such greats as  Billie HolidayDizzy GillespieElla FitzgeraldLouis Armstrong and  Thelonious Monk.

L.A. Noire Remixed is the fruit of a partnership with  Verve Records that provides a modern take on the music found throughout the world of L.A. Noire. This unique EP is a collection of six jazz standards re-interpreted by some of today's most acclaimed DJs, producers and remixers, including  Dave SitekDJ Premier and  Truth& Soul.
