According to RAMMSTEIN fan site Herzeleid.com, the new RAMMSTEIN single, "Mein Teil", has just been released in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland in two versions — jewel-case and limited-edition digipak. The only difference is the case; the jewel case is plastic, and the digipak is made mostly of paperboard. A third version will be released on August 9, a limited-edition "Pock-It!" single, which has only the first two tracks, is a mini-CD, and is cheaper than the normal editions. In various other countries there will be a two-track edition that is a normal-sized CD, but is otherwise identical to the "Pock-It!" edition. A vinyl edition, with yet another track listing, will also be available, though not through the normal channels as it seems it is intended for DJs only.
On the regular singles (jewel-case and digipak),there is a bonus program called the Rammstein Monitor. Each CD was manufactured with a unique ID number, which can only be used once to register the program. Therefore, it cannot be copied. The Rammstein Monitor contains news, information, pictures, and videos and will continue to be updated until the end of 2005 with new material. It can also be used as a screen-saver, displaying high-quality full-screen pictures of the band.
To go along with the release, the design of the group's official site has been updated with the theme of the new single.
