Rockstar Games' upcoming crime thriller L.A. Noire will be supported by orchestral scores, cover versions of 1940s classics, and a selection of remixes.

L.A. Noire The Official Soundtrack is the orchestral take on 1940s film scores, while L.A. Noire Remixed accommodates six cuts from modern mixers including Dave Sitek and DJ Premier.

The game itself is to contain more than 30 jazz classics, with Rockstar naming Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie, Billie Holiday and Thelonious Monk among the artists.

The two soundtrack albums will appear on iTunes on May 17, the day of the game's release on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Such a collection is relatively restrained in comparison to Rockstar's lavish seven-volume box set for Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and eight-disc San Andreas soundtrack.

2010's Gran Turismo 5 offered a two-CD set for collectors, while Crysis 2 and Motorstorm Apocalypse recruited film composers Hans Zimmer and Klaus Badelt respectively.
