"It's All True" is the first single from singer Tracey Thorn's solo album, Out of the Woods, released in February 2007. The Martin Buttrich Vocal Mix of the single was premiered on 24 November 2006, on Everything But the Girl's, Ben Watt's online radio show, Buzzin' Fly. The Album Mix was subsequently released on Tracey Thorn's official Myspace page in early December 2006. "It's All True" is one of seven songs produced by Ewan Pearson. The music was also co-written and produced by Klas-henrik "Sasse" Lindblad and Darshan Jesrani of Metro Area. One of the digital releases EP has a cover version of the Pet Shop Boys song, "Kings Cross", on it.

Music critic Paul Flynn, reviewing the Out of the Woods solo set, praised both the song and its place on the album ; "The spare and glittery electro grooves of single Its All True, borrowed with affection from shrink-wrapped old Sleeping Bag 12-inch singles, is a neat bridge into the warm, languid funk of her reinterpretation of Arthur Russell's Get Around to It." [1]

The song[edit]

Thorn describes "It's All True" as "pure early 80s New York dance pop."

It hit number one on the "Cool Cuts" chart in the UK for the week of 23 December 2006 [1] and reached number 75 on the UK Singles Chart.

Music video[edit]

The music video for "It's All True", directed by Si and Ad, was released in early February 2007. The video features a full-scale room of office workers dancing at their desks. Thorn is seen only from a distance. Thorn is quoted saying, "it features a heavily stylised monochromatic dance routine, in which I feature almost invisibly... (which suits me just fine)." The video can be viewed on Thorn's official Myspace.
