Music has been a huge factor in previous DIRT titles, particularly DiRT 2 and DiRT 3 – games that we’ve specifically marked as inspirations for this latest entry in the series. Even when we revealed DIRT 5 to the world back in early-May, one of the most asked questions we received has been around the soundtrack. With all that in mind, we knew that music had to be a big focus for DIRT 5 – and it’s time to reveal all!
The DIRT 5 soundtrack brings you over 40 of the best and brightest sounds from multiple genres, from artists around the globe, making it a key part of DIRT 5’s overall style and vibe. Iconic rock acts such as The Killers and New Found Glory; hot new acts like Sports Team, The Mysterines and YUNGBLUD; club legends like The Chemical Brothers and The Prodigy; all that and more has a spot in DIRT 5’s hand-picked, eclectic soundtrack.
In-game, this music will be the backdrop whenever you navigate through DIRT 5’s menus and race setups, and will naturally transition as you load into a race event. Once you’re racing, players will have multiple options for how to listen to the soundtrack. In the pause menu’s audio settings, choose ‘3D’ for the music to dynamically change as you race past speakers and points of interest along the track, or select ‘2D’ to have the music playing consistently through the race. There are, of course, options to adjust the volume levels, including switching the music off.

We’ve compiled all these tracks into a DIRT 5 Spotify playlist for you to save, download and get acquainted with between now and October. This is just the beginning, too – as we head towards launch we’ll have more songs from world-renowned artists to add to DIRT 5’s soundtrack, including exclusives that you’ll hear for the very first time in this game.
Those exclusive tracks and more will also feature in an official soundtrack release, as Codemasters partners with Universal Music to give you a way to stay in the vibe of DIRT 5, wherever you are. A real-world OST, available on music streaming platforms upon DIRT 5’s launch in October, is coming your way – keep an eye on our channels for news on tracks and release details.
