Grand Theft Auto V also has an in-game radio that can tune into sixteen stations playing more than tracks of licensed music, as well as two talk radio stations. The composers of the score wanted it to accompany the licensed music, as opposed to detracting from it. The game's music has been released on three official soundtracks: The Music of Grand Theft Auto V , released alongside the initial launch of the game, consists of three volumes comprising the score, and selections from the in-game radio; The Cinematographic Score — GTA 5 , an electronic album released in March , comprises tracks composed and produced by Tangerine Dream founder Edgar Froese ; and Welcome to Los Santos , released with the Microsoft Windows version of the game, features songs from the in-game radio station "The Lab", produced by The Alchemist and Oh No.

Edgar Froese , Tangerine Dream's founding member, initially rejected the offer of producing music for a video game. After he was flown to the studio and shown the game, he was impressed by its scale and cinematic nature, and changed his mind.
Froese's first eight months of work on the score produced 62 hours of music. After sharing his work with the team, he was particularly impressed by Froese's contributions. The Alchemist opined, "We were sampling, taking a piece form here, a piece from there We pitched stuff up, chopped it, tweaked it. Then we chose the tracks that worked and everyone came in and layered on that". Pavlovich found that while Rockstar assigned the team missions to write music for, some of their random creations influenced other missions and sparked inspiration for further score development.
He discussed a "stem-based" system used to make music fit dynamic game factors where the team would compose music to underscore outcomes players could make immediately after completing missions. The iconographic introduction of Los Santos early in the game, for example, inspired him to "create a smooth West Coast vibe that embodied" the city.
