Split Enz ‘True Colours’ is back with extra tracks, marking the 40th anniversary of its release in 1980.
‘True Colours’ came out on 25 January, 1980. It was the fifth album for Split Enz.
‘True Colours’ was the album when 21-year old Neil Finn excelled in the band. His song ‘I Got You’ became a number one hit in Australia and ‘True Colours’ a number one album as a result of the momentum.
Another single and hit song from the album was ‘I Hope I Never’, composed and sung by Tim Finn.
Two other songs ‘Nobody Takes Me Seriously’ and ‘’Whats The Matter With You’ were released as singles but failed to chart.
The ‘True Colours’ album was recorded at Armstrong Studios in South Melbourne between June and October 1977. The album was produced David Tickle who also worked on Joe Cocker’s ‘Night Calls, 4 Non Blondes ‘Bigger, Better, Faster, More!’, Toni Childs ‘Union’ and Belinda Carlisle’s ‘A Woman and a Man’.
