“True Faith” is a 1987 track from New Order, produced by Stephen Hague. It was the first New Order single since their debut “Ceremony” to be issued in the UK as two separate 12” singles. The second 12” single features two remixes of “True Faith” by Shep Pettibone. Both versions of the 12” (and also the edited 7”) also include the song “1963”. “True Faith” is one of New Order’s most popular songs.

The single peaked at number four in the United Kingdom on its original release in 1987. The single also became the first New Order single to chart on the Hot 100 in the United States that same year and their first ever Top 40 hit, peaking at number 32.
A “True Faith” remix 12” single and CD single were released in 1994, and another “True Faith” remix 12” single and CD single were released in 2001. The 1994 remix charted in the UK at number 9.


Original releases

New Order wrote and recorded “True Faith” and “1963” during a 10-day studio session with producer Stephen Hague. The two songs were written as new material for New Order’s first singles compilation album, Substance 1987. After the two songs were recorded, the band’s US management decided that “True Faith” was the stronger track and would be released as the new single, with “1963” as the B-side. “1963” was remixed and issued as a single in its own right in 1994.
