- Hong Kong
- Released August 1997 in Hong Kong, with bonus disc (Mandarin version of Seven Years In Tibet)
- In France, at least at FNAC stores (the equivalent of Tower in the US), Earthling was offered with a bonus limited edition CD. The sleeve is covered by Union Jack flag colours scratched with a black ball point pen. (Information courtesy of Eric Castaing)
- In Japan, the actual Earthling CD comes with an extra bonus track, namely Telling Lies (Adam F remix).
- UK 12" vinyl
- A limited edition 12" will be released Monday, 17 February. This is apparently very difficult to find according to my UK correspondents.
This album "combines jungle, hip-hop and ambient dance beats with rock" according to Billboard Magazine.

All album charts are sales-based. In each case, the first number you see is the first week's performance, the second the second's week performance, etc. For the purposes of comparison, I also include details of Outside's performance in the key first week or two, where available. Some of the Outside figures are drawn from my own or other people's memories, so they may be somewhat defective.
