New music, radio station to debut in GTA V for the PC

Welcome-to-Los-Santos-GTAVJust in time for the launch of GTA V’s Online Heists feature and the upcoming PC version, comes news that Grand Theft Auto V will be getting a brand new radio station which includes a selection of new music.

The new station, The Lab, will feature tracks from the upcoming album The Alchemist and Oh No Present: Welcome to Los Santos, and debut within the PC version.  The wording makes us think it could show up in the console versions at one point, but for now, it’s PC only beginning on April 14th.

The standalone album will launch on April 21st in a number of formats: digital, CD, vinyl.  Check out a track from the release, right here on Soundcloud and below.
