In the United States and Japan, Yesterday was released as a single in 1965 with a coupling  "Act Naturally". It was released in the UK as a four-track EP, so in the U.K, singles became 1976. In Japan, following the U.K. single release, the EAR-20030 stereo apple label has been re-coupling with " I Should Have Known Better".
