Gran Turismo 7 Original Soundtrack Released on Apple Music, Spotify & YouTube

In an unexpected Christmas treat and with little fanfare, Gran Turismo 7’s original soundtrack has been released across a number of streaming services and music platforms, giving players the chance to listen in without necessarily booting up the game.

Sitting alongside 2022’s Official Soundtrack, Find Your Line, these collections are titled “Best Lap” (which does make them awkward to find on YouTube particularly) — and the music selection consists of two albums: the Original Soundtrack (Vol 1) and the Jazz Selection (Vol 2).

Both volumes are available across a number of audio platforms, including Apple Music/iTunes, Spotify, and YouTube, coming in at a total listening time of just under two hours and 50 minutes.

The bulk of that comes from the Original Soundtrack, running to just over two hours, and consisting of original music you’ll encounter across many areas of the game.

Over the course of the 80-track listing there’s quite a scale of track durations included. That ranges from just eight seconds in length for a couple of the race start stings to some longer versions of the most significant pieces in GT7.

The longest is a seven-minute version of the iconic Masahiro Andoh track Moon Over the Castle, with the full church organ opening, but there’s also arrangements of Daiki Kasho‘s tracks SURV1V3 and 5OUL ON D!SPLAY (the GT5 theme), and the familiar Gran Turismo World Series presentation music — oddly listed as Cafe Menu End of Final Episode. You can even listen to the interpretation of Johannes Brahms’ Hungarian Dance No. 5 as used in Music Rally.

Meanwhile the Jazz Selection appears to cover the seasonal music players can enjoy in-game over the festive period. These 11 tracks are a more consistent four- or five-minutes apiece and include funky covers of Greensleeves, Hark the Herald Angels Sing, and Scarborough Fair.

That’s certainly a better option for some background Christmas party listening than Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas is You
