**  Unique sleeve and mix.
*** Also in a 3x12" set for promoting the US tour. The set also contains the
    9" flexi with "State of the Nation" (Evatone Soundsheets 1028121X-S).
+   It is unconfirmed if the A-side is the "4:10 (album edit)" or the
    "4:02 (remix)".

-   The tracks "the morning sun remix/edit", "the morning sun extended remix",
    and "alternate faith dub" are the same as the tracks "7 inch"/"4:02 remix",
    "remix 12 inch", and "True Dub", respectively.

Q: What is the character signing in the True Faith video?
A: She is signing to the verse: "I used to think that the day would never come..." and also "When I was a very small boy...."

Q: What is the difference between the UK and US 7" versions?
A: [death of art] "The UK 7 inch has an edited version of the full 12 inch, as was standard practice with UK 7 inch edits for New Order. This clocks in at 4:10. The US 7 inch on the other hand contains an edit of the Shep Pettibone remix, clocking in at 4:02. This remix edit is also found on the B-side of the Qwest US 7 inch of Blue Monday 88 (9 21887-7).
To get the two edits on CD, you need the following: The UK CDV (FACDV 183) lists a '7 inch' version as track three. Bizarrely although the CDV was a UK release, the 7 inch version in question is actually the US edit, not the UK one. This same version is also the lead track on the US promo CD5 (Qwest PRO-CD-2899), where it is listed as the 'morning sun remix edit'.To find the UK edit on CD you need the same US promo CD5, which lists it as 'album edit'."
