"True Stories", a 1986 film directed by David Byrne will be getting a Blu-ray and DVD release accompanied by a 23-song soundtrack album this 20th Nov.

Often called a cult classic among David Byrne fans, the movie stars Byrne, John Goodman, Swoosie Kurtz and Spalding Gray in a little Texan town that is filled with strange and musical characters preparing to celebrate and converge on a local parade and talent show.

Byrne had described the film as a project with music inspired by true stories from tabloid papers. "It's like 60 minutes on acid," he claims. See the movie trailer below.

The film will get a 4k digital transfer while the soundtrack will be remastered for surround sound. There also will be an accompanying booklet detailing Byrne's notes and photos and a documentary of the film production, deleted scenes, and more from the pre-production phase.
