The original mix features Max Bacon on vocals. This version does not appear on the European releases of the Islands album, due to Max Bacon still being under contract to Arista Records at the time. However, Bacon's vocals do appear on the US album version, which was not released until 1988 in an attempt to capitalize on Bacon's familiarity to US audiences as the vocalist of GTR. The UK album version features Jim Price on vocals.
The single's artwork differed in the UK and US. The UK artwork showed Oldfield standing on a blue background, covered in shadows of hands. The US artwork is in a similar style to the album cover, showing hands rising out of the ocean.
