GTA 5 Online Is Adding 5 New Radio Stations This Week
Over 250 new tracks are being added on December 15.
Grand Theft Auto V's Online mode is getting a major update this week for the Cayo Perico Heist, which adds a brand new social space and lots of new material, including a huge radio update that has now been detailed. The game is adding five new radio stations, and some major artists are involved.
In a Rockstar newswire post, each of the new channels has been detailed. The first one, Still Slipping Los Santos, is helmed by UK DJ Joy Orbison, and will feature techno and house beats. It sounds like this one will be a pirate radio station, and will tie into some of the new missions coming to GTA Online--"he’s having trouble getting a strong enough signal to reach beyond his neighborhood. If he’s going to take his sound city and statewide, he’s going to need some help getting started," the post says.
The next station is Kult FM 99.1, hosted by Julian Casablancas. This one will feature a lot of throwback tracks from the likes of Joy Division, New Order, and the Velvet Underground, as well as guest appearances from Mac DeMarco, David Cross, and Tony Mac. The Music Locker, meanwhile, will feature various club tracks when it debuts.
FlyLo FM is Flying Lotus' new station, and it'll feature artists like Madlib, MF Doom, and "a bunch of rare, exclusive, and amazing surprises." Finally, Worldwide FM comes from DJ Gilles Peterson, and features a mix of disco and world music.
All of this is in addition to GTA Online's already massive list of stations and tracks. This new update will add over 250 new music tracks to the game.
These will all be part of a huge update that should keep fans going until the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions of GTA V and Online arrive later in 2021.
