The EP includes seven tracks, one of which called "I Never Stopped Loving You" has not been publicly released and can be acquired by sending Anohni, via her e-mail address, a personal e-mail sharing with her "...a sentence or two what you care most about, or your hopes for the future. Send this to me instead of the dollar you used to send me in the olden days."[16]
