The Gran Turismo series has always had a distinctive soundtrack, but with upcoming sequel Gran Turismo 7, developer Polyphony Digital is leaning even harder into its simulation racer’s sounds. There’ll be over 300 songs in the final game, and they’ll span new modes such as Music Rally and Music Replay, both of which combine automotive action with audio.
In the latest Find Your Line reveal trailer, the Japanese developer has revealed some of the artists you can expect to feature, including Spanish superstar Rosalía and a song from The Fanatix, featuring Idris Elba:
But the highlight is perhaps Bring Me the Horizon’s cover of Moon Over the Castle, which is a classic song from the original Gran Turismo game. You can check out the new version, set against a Music Replay backdrop, below:
And just in case you wanted to revisit the PS1 version by Masahiro Ando, we’ve embedded that as well. Personally, we prefer the original as it’s got that mid-90s SEGA arcade energy to it, but the updated version isn’t bad at all:

I’m 39 this month. I know none of these artists.
@thefourfoldroot Eh, there aren't any absolutely enormous artists here, so that's fair enough.
Rosalia and Bring Me the Horizon are pretty big, but I wouldn't expect everyone to know them.
Rosalia’s great, BMTH are a sorta cringe throwback. Idris Elba’s rapping makes me wish he’d do the Knuckles rap in the Sonic movie though. This soundtrack isn’t as good as Sport’s so far from what they’ve shown, at least that game had A Tribe Called Quest.
Damn. I was hoping for Bring Me Sunshine by Morecombe and Wise.
Oh, fair enough, I presumed these were popular artists that I don’t hear about due to being old and disconnected from what’s current, lol.
If there's no "Driving in my Car" by Madness then it's no purchase for me.
Nothing beats the GT4 soundtrack?
I imagine there's some good stuff here, and for general driving away from the music related modes there'll be loads of gt playlists knocking about on spotify.
Nothing beats nfsu2 soundtrack... riders on the storm!
I need 2 things:
1. Feeder from GT3
2. Lenny Ibizzare from GTSport. I was amazed to hear music I hadn’t seen head nor tail of for 20 years in that!
Rock n Roll Racer
A 4pl.game on DreamCast kill em all.
Lotus Esprit Challenge Amiga 500
Ridge Racer Ps1
@RadioHedgeFund GT3 intro with Feeder playing. What an awsome intro that was 👌👌👌👌
The Wolf Is Loose and Circle of Cysquatch by Mastodon should be on every racing game. All of them. ESPECIALLY Kart racers.
I will also accept the entire oeuvre of The Vengaboys.
@Kidfunkadelic83 Yes! This guy gets it!
@RadioHedgeFund they play it on absolute radio quite alot and it always takes be back to that intro. Awsome times 👌
