Grand Theft Auto V features 15 radio stations, 240 licensed songs, and “somewhere in the proximity of 20 movies worth of score,” according to Rockstar’s soundtrack supervisor, Ivan Pavlovich.

“For this game, which is set in our version of modern day Los Angeles, what was important for us was to capture that feeling of L.A. and California,” he told Rolling Stone. “We approached the radio stations as the musical soundscape [you experience] as you fly into L.A. One of the things we’ve never done in a GTA game before is a pop station; exploring that made so much sense in the context of L.A.”

Pavlovich added that Flying Lotus and Odd Future’s Tyler The Creator have created an original song for the game. “There is an original song made for the game [by them]. What Steve [Ellison, aka Flying Lotus] did so well was that he reached out to all of his artist friends and asked them to send him music.

“You’ll find some classics on his station, but a lot of the station is based on unreleased new material, created either by Steve himself or friends of his who submitted music to him for this project. Steve’s a huge gamer, so I think this was as exciting for him as it was for us to work together.”

Grand Theft Auto V is set to release September 17 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
