It was released on September 15, 1986, by Sire Records, around the same time as lead singer David Byrne's film of the same name. The album does not contain the actors' performances from the film. Instead, this is a Talking Heads studio album featuring recordings of songs from the film.

True Stories is the seventh album released by Talking Heads in 1986; it was released at the same time as the David Byrne film of the same name, True Stories. The album does not contain the actors' performances from the film, and as such is not considered a true soundtrack album. Byrne stated in an interview that the decision not to release these unique renditions (including performances byJohn Goodman and Pops Staples) is a major regret.

This is neither Talking Heads’ platinum sellout nor their masterpiece. It is the loosest and least complex record they’ve done; David Byrne’s strange-but-true vignettes of suburban eccentricity are given warmth and credibility by the rest of the group. Byrne has never sounded more excited - or less detached. On the rollicking Love for Sale, he declares, I was born in a house with the television always on/Guess I grew up too fast/And I forgot my name, restating the theme of Little Creatures’ Give Me Back My Name in more specific, personal terms. It’s the more ambitious cuts that give True Stories its veracity. The idea of Talking Heads going on a hayride may seem a dodgy proposition, but the country-drenched People Like Us is this LP’s peak. Rather than affect a down-home twang, Byrne sings in his natural tone, and the resulting tension drives the lyric home.

He created a musical called True Stories and he couldn’t have made a movie with out a soundtrack. Him and his band, The Talking Heads, made an album and soundtrack just as unpredictable and impulsive as Byrne is. It is impossible to classify this album into one or even two genres. The first six tracks have a habit of switching from one genre to a completely different one. The opening track Love For Sale has a very Classic Punk sound to it.

True Stories" may not the Talking Heads best album, but it's definitely full of charm and flavor. This is an unusual album. It's considered a soundtrack to the movie, "True Stories". I do enjoy this strange piece of art. This record signifies the end of the beginning for the band. This album feels much more like a David Byrne album than a Talking Heads album. But the songs on "True Stories" are really good and diverse. It's a very disjointed, messy song with a lazy arrangement. Too bad. "True Stories" is a fun album. If you like weird, obscure '80s albums then this one is for you. Enjoy!

Love for Sale is the opening track of the Talking Heads' seventh studio album, True Stories, released in conjunction with David Byrne’s film of the same name. While Love for Sale was featured in the film, the recording used is different to the one on the album. Songwriter David Byrne tried to fit as many actual ad slogans into the lyrics as possible, poking gentle fun at western consumerism.
