Information

Promotion

The single was promoted in Germany via a promotional CD, which had all the normal tracks as the retail version of the single, plus a promotional folder and a store poster.[1] Sadly the folder is only available in small sizes on the internet, of which the promotional text can't be read. Additionally a promotional VHS was sent out, which includes the music video for the song.

But there is a promotional sheet of the single, which came with a German promotional CD. If it came with the one mentioned above or a different copy, is not known. The text is as follows:

German original

RAMMSTEIN IST EINFACH NICHT ZUFASSEN UND NICHT ZU FASSEN

Vorab erscheint die neue RAMMSTEIN Single "Engel" ein optisch rockiger, 90er-Jahre-Punk-lasstiger Midtempo Song, der der Seele wieder Mut macht. RAMMSTEIN ist wieder bei uns.

Klar, wird das bereits auf Engel. Facettenreichtum, Vielschichtigkeit und Liebe zum Detail zeichnen diesen Ohrwurm aus.

Ein Song voller Emotionalität und ein musikalischer Wärmespender in unseren kalten Zeiten

P.1997

English Deepl translation

RAMMSTEIN IS SIMPLY NOT TO BE SEIZED AND NOT TO BE GRASPED

In advance the new RAMMSTEIN single "Engel" is released a visually rocking, 90's punk-flavored midtempo song that gives courage to the soul again. RAMMSTEIN is back with us.

Clearly, this is already on Engel. Facet richness, complexity and attention to detail characterize this earworm.

A song full of emotionality and a musical warmer in our cold times.

P.1997

Engel was also the first single to be promoted outside of Germany. The USA promotional CD included the normal album version of the song, plus the English version as a hidden track, that's not mentioned on the tracklist or the CD, but only on the hype sticker on the front. The single also had promotional CDs in Australasia and Mexico.

Misprint

The single was released as a limited digipak in Germany. A few of those digipaks had their tracks mispressed on the CD. Both Rammstein remixes were played as one song, and additionally the single included a different mix of Sehnsucht.

The promotional CD for the USA had a misprint on the CD itself. Paul's last name was written as "Lenders", and not "Landers".
