Not announced from the start but definitely planned from the start. This means they will be using a new composer for each part. The series that is currently airing will only be adapting Part 1 (Phantom Blood) and Part 2 (Battle Tendency), but the original announcement said they would be adapting all the parts (there's 7, with the 8th currently publishing).

In case you aren't familiar, each part of the series follows a new set of characters in different settings. Part 1 starts in the late 1800s in England and follows Jonathan Joestar. Part 2 starts in the 1930s in New York and follows Joseph Joestar.

Since Lotus Juice is involved, there will definitely be some rap fused in. However, this doesn't necessarily mean it will be the same mediocre experimental stuff Iwasaki has been pushing out lately. Lotus Juice performed two tracks for Katanagatari (rap in "Bahasa Palus" and vocals in "Lay back") and that was still a good soundtrack - the last good one Iwasaki worked on in my opinion.
