The "My Immortal" CD single was released on December 8, 2003.[1] This was the first single release to not have a DVD single released in the UK.

Commercial releases

Australia/US/Europe CD single

Status: Out of Print
Label: Wind-up/Epic
Cat.no: 674528 2

All of the international (excluding The UK) promotional commercial singles feature the same track listing.

  1. "My Immortal" [Band version]
  2. "My Immortal" [Album version]
  3. "Haunted" [Live from Sessions@AOL]
  4. "My Immortal" [Live from Cologne, Germany]
  • The CD itself features a distorted silkscreen black My Immortal Logo with some white text on a yellow background.

Industry promotional releases

US radio singles

3 singles were produced for the United States radio scene. One containing the [Band Version (No Strings)] mix with a distinctively different cover, and the other containing the [Band Version (Guitars Down)] mix with the standard artwork. Both also contain the album version of the track. The last one has no special artwork on the CD itself although comes with 3 tracks (no other WUJC release has ever come with 3 tracks) rather than 2 tracks like the other "My Immortal" promos or 1 track only like all the other WUJC singles.
