On September 10 1986, True Blue was released as a single in Canada. Written & produced by Madonna & Stephen Bray, the title-track of her third album was a 1960’s Motown-inspired love letter to her husband, Sean Penn.

After including True Blue on 1987’s Who’s That Girl World Tour set list, the song appeared to have been written out of Madonna’s repertoire following her split from Sean. By 2015’s Rebel Heart Tour, Madonna had made amens with both Sean and True Blue, performing the track as a stripped-down, crowd-pleasing acoustic number.

Shep Pettibone’s remixes of the single marked his first of many collaborations with Madonna.

  1. I Became a Fan once again on 9-12-15 when I Heard Madonna play True Blue during Rebel Heart and naturally I was overjoyed! She is still the best out there when it comes to quality
    Pop/Rock-Madonna’s music is tuneful and melodic and the title cut to True Blue is brilliant!
