|Rammstein single chronology|
The single came in two different formats. Jewel case and digipak. The jewel case was released in Germany via Motor, in France via XIII BIS Records. Promotional singles had a different tracklist than the commercial single: some came just with "Engel" as a one-track-CD, others included the English version of the song as a hidden track.
Both the digipak and the jewel case versions were misprinted. The mispressed versions included a different mix of Sehnsucht. The mispressed jewel case had the catalog number 573 665-1 01, while the corrected version had the number 573 665-1 02. The mispressed digipak on the other hand had the catalog number 573 665-2 03. Beside the different mix, the digipak version also had the problem that the two Rammstein remixes were playing as one song, so the single only had four instead of five songs.
Remixes were contributed to the single by Eskimos & Egypt.
Some copies of the original German pressing of the CD had a sticker put on the front, and were provided to members of the press in DIN A4 info folders.
Songs 3 & 4 were pressed as one song, so the single only had four songs on it.
