This release was also sold separately as a "standard" edition C.D. with two less tracks - the last two listed below are "missing".
The only catch being that in the U.K. the Deluxe Edition C.D. was only available from H.M.V.

There was a so-called "double a-side single" issued from the album on 20th June 2018, I Don't Know c/w Come On To Me
But this appears to be download only.
Although, separate cd promos of the two tracks have been spotted, each containing two versions of each track:
    I Don't Know:      1. Radio Edit 3:45 - 2. Original Version 4:26
    Come On To Me: 1. Radio Edit 3:17 - 2. Original Version 4:10
And also released before the album's appearance was; Fuh You on 15th August 2018 - again download only.
