A half-Italian version of the song, titled "Read All About It (Tutto quello che devi sapere)" and featuring singer-songwriterDolcenera, was released as a digital single in Italy on 9 December 2011. This version of the song was included on the Italian version of Professor Green's At Your Inconvenience, as well as on Dolcenera's Evoluzione della specie².
A music video to accompany the release of "Read All About It" was first released onto YouTube on 15 September 2011 at a total length of three minutes and fifty-four seconds.
The video begins with a five-year old boy (in the same situation Professor Green was in at that age) staring at his step-mother working and his younger half-sister playing. The child's step-mother realises that her step-son is outside staring inside the house, she then calls the child's father. Later on in the video you can see the boy's father talking to someone on the phone (probably the boy's mother). Later the child goes upstairs into what appears to be his old room and damages many things (such as pictures). His father catches him and his step-mother screams at him, the child also screams back. In the end he puts his hands on his ears and closes his eyes. When he opens his eyes, he finds himself in a warehouse. Then he sees Professor Green entering through the front door. The video also shows Professor Green rapping outside the warehouse against a background of altocumulus and stratocumulus clouds lit by the setting sun, as well as Emeli Sandé singing in the rain at night. This video is loosely based on the life of Professor Green himself.
On 5 October 2011, Professor Green and Emeli Sandé performed the song live at the MOBO Awards at the SECC in Glasgow. They performed the song on The X Factor Results Show on 23 October 2011. On 18 November 2011 they performed the song live on Children in Need 2011. On 28 January 2012, Professor Green and Dolcenera performed the song live during the first episode of the Italian show London Live 2.0. On 16 February 2012, they also performed the song during the third night of the 62nd Sanremo Music Festival. In August 2012, during weekend at V Festival 2012 Green and Sandé performed the song during Green's Set at both parks at V Festival. This is only festival Green and Sandé will perform the song together. The song was also again performed together at Sandé's Royal Albert Hall gig in London on 11 November 2012 it was also filmed for her DVD.
Robert Copsey of Digital Spy Blog gave the song a very positive review stating:
If we were to liken it to the US rapper (Eminem), we'd suggest 'Read All About It' was his 'Cleanin' Out My Closet' moment; but in truth its lyrical content is too personal to be compared to his peers. "I wasn't even 5/ Life's a journey and mine wasn't an easy ride," he says of the tense relationship with his family after his father committed suicide, before a stadium-sized chorus courtesy of R&B-soul singer Emeli Sandé ensues. It may doff its cap to the rapping greats, but few can deny this is all Pro Green.
