The first twelve or so (exact numbers unknown) of the blue vinyl edition were different in design from the others, featuring enhanced embroidery and a business card from the award-winning embroidery artist, Laura Lees. These extremely rare singles were very time-consuming to fabricate, so the design was simplified for the remainder of the format. Therefore the first twelve are highly sought after and occasionally change hands on eBay for several hundred pounds.
The A-side "Soft" features a sample from Chicago's "If You Leave Me Now" with a vocal track taken from an archive episode of the religious "Pause for Thought" segment of a BBC Radio 2 show. The B-side titled "Rock" contains samples of The Black Crowes version of Otis Redding’s "Hard to Handle".
