Release[edit | edit source]

Initialy, the deluxe box set vinyl supposed to be a 7" single with only the Warehouse tracks.[1] However, later on it became a 4 track 10" EP, with addition of two tracks from the O2 show, edited and ommited from standard edition of corresponding live album – Say Hello Wave Goodbye: The O2 London. The change of format and tracklisting wasn't publicly announced and old listing remained on web stores until box sets were sold out.[1] It was revealed with digital version of EP given away to those who pre-ordered box sets, as a compensation for shipment delays.
