Rockstar Games announced Thursday (Dec. 10) that Grand Theft Auto Online will have three new radio stations, featuring more than 250 new songs to make up its largest musical update.

Julian Casablancas of The Strokes and The Voidz will host K.U.L.T. 99.1 Vespucci Beach, aka "Low Power Beach Radio," with special appearances from Mac DeMarco, David Cross and Tony Mac. The station will exclusively premiere The Voidz's new track "Alien Crime Lord" to the world and span selections from Joy Division, Danzig and The Velvet Underground.

Up next, UK DJ Joy Orbison is launching his own pirate radio station, Still Slipping Los Santos, on Dec. 15, which will feature a mix of house, techno, drill and drum-and-bass music.

And later this month, The Music Locker's self-titled radio station will be the go-to spot for house, techno and disco music. Los Santos' hottest new underground nightclub is brining the best genre-defying sets from Palms Trax and Moodymann as well as Keinemusik's mixes.

GTA Online will also feature brand new mixes on its hit stations FlyLo FM and Worldwide FM. Grammy-nominated producer Flying Lotus has special guest appearances from Tierra Whack and new tracks from Madlib and MF Doom already cued up on FlyLo FM. Over at Worldwide FM, where New London jazz meets disco meets global music, DJ Gilles Peterson is hyping up a new, unreleased collaboration from BadBadNotGood and MF Doom and tracks from Kamasi Washington and Khruangbin.
