Promo CD cover

The Capital G single was released in Europe on June 4, 2007, on vinyl only (9"). Trent Reznor made this decision after Interscope initially wanted to release the single in a manner similar to Survivalism. Reznor has expressed his displeasure with multiple-part CD singles, feeling that they force his fans to spend more on a single than they really should.[1]

Because it is a vinyl-only single, Capital G has not been designated as a Halo. To clarify, Rob Sheridan posted the following on The Spiral:

"It will not be a halo. It's a simple 9" vinyl release the record company really wanted to put out - Europe only, I believe. Side A is Capital G, side B is the Dave Sitek Survivalism remix. It will be nice for the people who have the 9" collector box, but we kept a halo # off of it because it doesn't warrant one, and so regular collectors wouldn't feel any pressure to pick it up just for the sake of completeness."

Artwork

The emblem on the cover of Capital G (as well a similar one for the fictional US Bureau of Morality) is adapted from the emblem used by the Veterans of Foreign Wars. It should be noted that the cover art for the Capital G promo is similar to the cover art for Y34RZ3R0R3M1X3D.
