"Homesick" was released as the fourth single digitally, making available for the first time a single mix of the track. This was followed by a double radio release of singles five and six, "The Whole World Reminds Me Of You" and "Crying In Denial", both of which garnered highly successful airplay runs in a radio edit form.
