Gran Turismo Soundtrack: With the film Gran Turismo coming to cinema screens soon, the film’s composer Lorne Balfe released the first track on its official soundtrack on August 11.
Balfe, whose composing credits include several Mission: Impossible films, the Assassin’s Creed video game, and the Le Mans mini-series that featured Jane Mardenborough‘s LMP drive in the ill-fated Nissan GT-R LM Nismo, debuted the track on social media.
As the movie is dying to have you believe, the main appeal of the game is how effortless it feels and how it universally communicates a sense of both immersion and entertainment, regardless of who owns the controller. But many Gran Turismo games have great soundtracks (we’d highly recommend queuing up GT4’s jukebox selection if you need some inspiration).
So, with the Gran Turismo movie hitting theaters this week and coming to other theaters soon, here are the full details of the film’s soundtrack, including songs and score, and vinyl and streaming details of the Gran Turismo Soundtrack.
