In True Stories, Byrne uses his songs to stitch together pop iconography, voodoo rituals, and a singular variety show. Byrne calls the record An immersive audio voyage into the little town of Virgil, Texas, in the mid-eighties. He continues, I always imagined that the music written for True Stories should be heard as it is in the film. The full album track list is below.

The majority of the film's music is supplied by Talking Heads. A soundtrack album, titled Sounds from True Stories, featured songs by Byrne, Talking Heads, Terry Allen & The Panhandle Mystery Band, and others. Around the same time, Talking Heads released an album titled True Stories, composed of studio recordings of songs featured in the film.

This soundtrack to the film True Stories was the second release in a planned trilogy, the last of which - the film's actors covering songs from the album - never surfaced. Fortunately, this second volume did, a selection of background music and non-David Byrne tunes written for the film. Of the Byrne-penned selections, only a few borrow from Talking Heads songs, and the original compositions, perched somewhere between Penguin Cafe Orchestra and a general Americana feel, are pleasant

This is the world of True Stories, David Byrne’s 1986 feature film and directorial debut about a bunch of people in Virgil, Texas. It’s part zany, slice-of-life comedy, part anthropological study - processed through the music of Talking Heads and projected through a loving, art house lens. It’s the most earnest portrait of ’80s America ever committed to screen, set against shopping malls, prefab warehouses, freeway cloverleafs, faceless tech buildings, fading small-town kitsch, and endless green acres of possibilities. However, the picture truly coalesced after Byrne received some key advice from his Stop Making Sense collaborator, the late Jonathan Demme. He pointed out the value of having something he referred to as a ‘clock,' says Byrne. He meant that you know something’s coming, and that as the film moves on, you know you’re going to get closer to it.
