Twin Peaks spawned five soundtrack albums: one inspired by the series, one for the prequel film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, one focusing on music from the second season (but also including tracks used in the pilot, first season, and film), and two featuring music from the 2017 revival.
212 tracks not featured on the soundtracks were also released through David Lynch's website as The Twin Peaks Archive.

All the songs from the album were written by Angelo Badalamenti, which received the 1990 Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental Performance for "Twin Peaks Theme". Most of the songs are instrumental pieces, except the three songs that contain lyrics were written by David Lynch. These three songs are available on the singer Julee Cruise's album Floating into the Night. Cruise's album also contains songs that were used in the series, but are not included in any soundtrack release.
