The instrumental soundtrack was recorded by the band (minus lead singer Bobby Kimball), accompanied by the Vienna Symphony Orchestra and the Vienna Volksoper Choir, conducted by Marty Paich (David's father). Band members contributed to the composing of the instrumental music. Toto also performed the "Prophecy Theme", a piece composed for the movie by Brian Eno.

The first soundtrack issue contained select cues in their original film order, plus two pieces of dialogue from the movie that serve as bookends for two tracks ("Prologue" and "The Floating Fat Man (The Baron)"). This first issue was released by Polydor Records.

An extended version containing additional cues not included on the first soundtrack issue was released in 1997 on PEG Records, an independent label division of Polygram. The main caveats of this issue was that several additional tracks had mastering problems (due to the wobbling effect heard during these tracks). Also, many cues (particularly in the second half of the expanded CD) were mislabeled and placed out of film order. Some of the album's positive spots included the film version of the "Main Title" (whereas an alternate version was included on the first OST), and an original demo of the main title music.

On the contrary, several tracks on both soundtrack issues either differ from the versions heard in the film, or were dialed out in the film. For example, the end title theme, "Take My Hand", is heard on the OST CDs minus the orchestration heard in the final film mix. The version of "Robot Fight" on the original OST is heard in the theatrical version, while the version on the expanded CD is used in the "Allen Smithee"/TV versions. The cues "Riding The Sandworm" (from the expanded CD) and "Dune (Desert Theme)", "Prelude (Take My Hand)", "Paul Kills Feyd" & "Final Dream" (from both soundtrack issues) are not heard in the movie and are replaced by either tracked or alternate cues, although the television versions restore "Paul Kills Feyd" in its original place in the movie, and "Dune (Desert Theme)" was intended as the end title music but replaced by a more subtle piece, "Take My Hand". Alan Smithee, Allen Smithee & Adam Smithee are pseudonyms used between 1968 and 1999 by Hollywood film directors who want to be dissociated from a film for which they no longer wanted credit. ...

The television versions included as much of the unreleased music as was possible, but if one hears the soundtrack closely one can hear one cue overlaid on another, creating a sense of confusion.

In any event, the Dune soundtrack was the first and, to-date, only film Toto has scored.
