The title song, written by Billy Steinberg and Tom Kelly, secured Lauper's status as a successful record producer and performer. It has been covered by countless other artists including Phil Collins, Anna Tsuchiya and Kasey Chambers, and was used as the theme song for the 1988 Olympic Games, the 2003 Rugby World Cup and for Kodak cameras and film. This album went double Platinum in the USA.
While the album was quite successful in the U.S. and UK, it failed to match the success of Lauper's previous album, She's So Unusual . The album produced the singles "True Colors," "Change of Heart," "What's Going On," and "Boy Blue." Each single had a music video. The fourth and final commercial single, Boy Blue failed to make a big impact on the charts, although a live video was in heavy rotation on MTV in the summer of 1987.
True Colors was re-issued in a Japanese exclusive limited edition box set 11-track digitally remastered CD album the 2nd longplayer from Lauper released in 1986 includes bonus recording True Colours recorded live at Summer Sonic 07 in Tokyo.
"911" was nominated for the 1986 Rock Female Vocalist Grammy Award.
