The 7" single runs about 30 seconds shorter than the album version; no lyrics are removed, but the opening guitar intro and the other guitar solos are shortened slightly.
The music video for this song was directed by Doug Smith and shot on 22 July 1981 at the Royal Court Theatre in Liverpool, England. The photo on "Let It Go" single cover was taken from that shoot. Other songs filmed that day were "High 'n' Dry (Saturday Night)" and "Bringin' On the Heartbreak".
“Let It Go” is the second most-played song from High'n'Dry after “Bringing' On the Heartbreak”. The song was played consistently on the tours supporting its parent album, Pyromania and Hysteria, but was then discarded completely until 1999. However since then “Let It Go” has been quite frequently reintroduced into setlists.
