The upcoming release of the highly-anticipated video game Grand Theft Auto V has brought with it an array of intriguing musical collaborations on its soundtrack, including the previously released Action Bronson and Danny Brown‘s “Bad News” and Flying Lotus and DOOM‘s collab “Masquatch.” Perhaps the most interesting yet of these tracks is “Play It Cool,” a new hit by rappers Oh No and The Alchemist, together referred to as the duo Gangrene.
The track also features Earl Sweatshirt and Samuel T. Herring of indie rock band Future Islands for an unexpectedly satisfying twist to the catchy song; Earl delivers tight rhymes while Herring provides a melodic hook that mixes perfectly with the jazzy beat that dominates the track.
“Play It Cool” is the first single released off of Gangrene’s upcoming album, The Alchemist and Oh No Present: Welcome to Los Santos, due to be released in accompaniment the new game on April 14th. The full-length was created as an expansion to the score Gangrene originally created for Grant Theft.
Listen to the track below and stay tuned for more collaborations off this exciting soundtrack.
