"Change" was remixed in 1992.[1][2] "Change: The Spiral Tribe Mix" was released as a 12" vinyl and a CD Maxi single under E'G Records, and there was also a cassette version. "Change: The Youth Mixes" was the third release of "Change". It was released as a CD Maxi single under Virgin Records. The title goes hand-in-hand with who mixed "Change" and "Requiem", being Martin Glover, who, by this time, would soon make a return with Killing Joke in 1993, in time to record their album, Pandemonium.

The remixes of "Change" were engineered by John Brough, and the remixes of "Requiem" were engineered by Chris Potter.
