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. 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:
RAMMSTEIN IST EINFACH NICHT ZUFASSEN UND NICHT ZU FASSEN
|English Deepl translation|
RAMMSTEIN IS SIMPLY NOT TO BE SEIZED AND NOT TO BE GRASPED
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.
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".
Songs 3 & 4 were pressed as one song, so the single only had four songs on it.
