Releases[edit]

"My Love of this Land" was first released as a 7" single. Similar to "America", it was the second official single by Killing Joke to be produced by members of the band. "My Love of this Land" was featured as the A-side and "Darkness Before Dawn" as a B-side, previously from the album Night Time. "My Love of this Land" was then released as a 10" single in the UK. It featured a remix of "My Love of this Land" by Glenn Skinner as the A-side, along with "Darkness Before Dawn". The B-side featured "Follow the Leaders-Dub" and "Sun Goes Down". A third release of the single was on a 12" single. The A-side was the same as the A-side of the 10" release, while the B-side included a live version of "Pssyche" with "Follow the Leaders-Dub".[1]
