Related tracks[edit]

Several tracks recorded after the release of Costa's previous album, Pebble to a Pearl (2008), did not make the final EP, although "Not the Only One", "Everybody Loves You When You Are Dead", "Ching Ching Ching", "Song For Stadiums", and "Radio" were included on an earlier promotional version (from which "Chase the Thrill" was omitted). "Ching Ching Ching" was released as a single in Europe and entered the German Charts at #77, making it Costa's first single to chart in that country since "On My Own" in 1981. "Not the Only One" was also released as a single. "Kick" appeared on the INXS tribute album Original Sin.
