The single was released on three different physical formats. CD1 includes an exclusive live recording of "Young Folks", taken from the live lounge sessions on BBC Radio 1.

Music video[edit]

The video for the song, shot entirely in black and white, shows the story of a man travelling to return personal belongings of a dead soldier to the soldier's wife.[2] The video was filmed in Dorset, south-west England, and features scenes of Wareham railway station, houses and the valley in Swanage, the region around St. Aldhelm's Head and the twelfth-century St. Aldhelm's Chapel. The combat scene was shot at Bovington Camp, where Blunt had been stationed during his service in the British Army, and features soldiers from the camp.[2]
