The song originally appeared as the last track on the album's cassette and CD issues (it did not appear on the vinyl version). It was then issued in 1986 as the album's second commercially released single in the US (following "Shela"), and was the fourth and final promo-single taken from the album.
The single was released as a limited edition 12-inch vinyl and cassette single in Canada. The single was backed by three b-sides, all live tracks recorded at a live performance at The Centrum, Worcester, Massachusetts on March 12, 1986. The show was a part of the Done with Mirrors Tour.
