True Nature

True Nature is the second single from the Strays album, released on October 27, 2003 by Capitol Records.  This song has an accompanying music video.

Alternate Versions:

There is a U.K. 7″ picture vinyl single.  It includes a live version of Been Caught Stealing recorded the August 10, 2003 Lollapalooza concert at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in The Woodlands, TX.  This single lacks the single’s traditional artwork.  Instead it uses promo tour artwork for the cover, and a promo shot of the band on the back.

There is a two-volume European single.  The first disc includes the cover artwork with red print and contains the same musical content as the 7″ single. The second disc has the cover artwork in purple print, includes the live version of Just Because from the 5/17/03 Club AD performance and a version of Stop! performed during a Westwood One Radio Session.  This disc also includes the music video for True Nature as enhanced multimedia content.  Finally, the second disc also comes with a U.K. tour mini-poster.  Disc one comes in a j-card style jewel case where disc two comes in a standard full-size jewel case.

An Australian single includes the two tracks found on the 7″ version, and a live version of Just Because recorded on May 17, 2003 at Club AD in Los Angeles, CA.  This version includes the title artwork in red, and comes with a standard j-card style jewel case.

The promo single for this song includes a radio edit of the title track.
