A Forerunner to the next album "Off The Ground" which will be released in February, this single is the first to include a European code on the sleeve, which is 7 2438 80438 7 8.
The A-side will be on the album, the B-side although recorded at the same sessions appears only here.

The same day a CD single, and a cassette single was released. The CD added two more tracks, both of which were to be found only on the CD. These were "Big Boys Bickering" and "Kicked Around No More".
The C.D. comes in an unusually styled format, consisting of a solid black plastic tray with a wrap-around cover, not like any other C.D. that I have. The front cover is basically the same as the single, so I do not show it above. I show the rear and a shot inside of the C.D. sitting in it's tray.

One week later a 12" appeared, this contained the single version tucked away on the B-side, with the main track being a disco "remix". The remix by Steve Anderson of the Disco Mix Club (D.M.C.) based in Slough, England, supplied a strong driving beat running at 122 bpm (Beats Per Minute) and featured very brief samples from the original sessions. Another "Dub" version of the track is included.

A promotional video clip was recorded on 26th November 1992 in North Acton, London. The director is Andy Morahan.
Checking my video library I couldn't find a copy of this, but I did locate film I have of a "Top Of The Pops" live performance of 7th January 1993.

The single was released in a picture sleeve, but the 12" comes in a plain white cardboard cover.
