“True” was the third album for the band and provided a different sound for the band as Steve Norman, who had been playing guitar for “Spandau Ballet,” introduced saxophone and percussion – his new focus changed the band’s sound forever and for the better. As with the previous albums, guitarist and keyboardist Gary Kemp wrote all of the material. “True,” the song, was a perfect vehicle to show off Tony Hadley’s vocals.
“True” (the single) charted on four of Billboard's charts: #76 on the R&B singles, #34 on the Mainstream Rock chart, #4 on the Hot 100, and #1 on the Adult Contemporary chart. The album peaked at #19. For the its 20th anniversary, the album was remastered and reissued in 2003.
