Listen: Talking Heads’ unreleased song from 1976

the talking heads

A never-before-heard instrumental track from Talking Heads has been dug up and posted online. According to (via Slicing Up Eyeballs), the song comes from one of the band’s sets opening for Television at CBGB’s on July 30, 1976.

The 5-minute-long cut doesn’t have an official title. When Bryne introduced the instrumental, an audience member called out, “No title?” Byrne responded by saying, “We call it ‘Theme,’ but then we just keep it to ourselves,” so we’re just going to stick with that. Check out the mid-tempo chill-out “Theme” below.
