The singles from Regeneration were not only distributed in UK but also worldwide. However, unlike the other singles from the two next albums on Parlophone, at the time of Regeneration the pressing were slightly different to the ones available in UK.

First of all, while in UK the singles came with a sticker on the case, such stickers were missing from the new CDs in other countries (except if the UK releases were imported of course).

Aside from the sticker, CD 1 is exactly the same as the UK release (within a 2xCD box too), so only CD 2 is listed here. Indeed, CD 2 is a bit different. Without a sticker too on the box, it also comes with a different printed artwork: more darker, and with a different cut margin on the left of the barcode.

A noticeable difference can be spot on the bel BIEM logo, as the UK release feature a circle around it, and not this release. Near the centre of the CD we can read IFPI L046 EMI UDEN 8790512 @ 1 which means that it was manufactured in a different plant.

Countries where such CD were made available include European Union, Easter Europe, Asia, but they were not specific to any of such countries. The CD was either commercially released along CD 1 (which did not came with those differences), or used as a promo CD. For example, in Germany the CD was catalogued as Promo CD and given with a press release card.

Note that in the bar code frame, for France no PM code is given (it reads: ‘F: PM’), however it seems some CDs were packaged with a sticker stating the correct PM code for distribution in France: PM 514. Later in the year, in France, a special promo CD was also released, but that is a complete different story.
