  • The CD was released in a tri-fold CD case, which folded out to show one of the Kouros statues from the album's cover, with the front of the statue on the inside and the back on the outside. The single was cut to allow the statue to appear to be holding the CD in its arms. Unlike the US album release, the statue's penis was not airbrushed out.
