Press release after the jump.
We are pleased to announce the launch of the full soundtrack of Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned, available starting today exclusively on the iTunes Store (www.itunes.com). Set against GTA IV’s iconic and beautifully rendered homage to New York, Liberty City, Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned is the first of two downloadable episodes that fit seamlessly alongside the larger Grand Theft Auto IV storyline. In addition to delivering an all-new story and a new protagonist – Johnny Klebitz, Vice President of The Lost biker gang – The Lost and Damned features its own, all-new enhanced soundtrack that reflects the episode’s story. To commemorate the launch of this all-new Grand Theft Auto experience, we’ve produced two separate albums, available exclusively on the iTunes Store in the US and iTunes Stores in Europe.
This first release is a collection of six original tracks produced by hip hop DJ Statik Selektah exclusively for the game. Statik Selektah’s The Lost and Damned EP is available now, and features the following tracks:

In addition to these releases, players can tag any song playing on the game’s 16 radio stations by calling a special number on their in-game cellphone – ZIT – and creating a customized playlist. This personalized playlist automatically uploads to the players registered profile on the Rockstar Games Social Club site (rockstargames.com/socialclub) and can be heard within the built-in ZIT music player. From there, a simple click through to iTunes will pull up the custom playlist, and with one click on the iTunes Store players can purchase their entire playlist or songs within it. For those interested in purchasing the soundtrack, iTunes now offers a Grand Theft Auto IV destination page with each in-game radio station’s playlist, exclusive albums and more, all accessible here
Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned, is available today, exclusively on the Xbox 360 via Xbox LIVE.
