All music by Black Sabbath.

A video was made for "God Is Dead?". The video was directed by Peter Joseph, an independent American filmmaker mostly known for his conspirationist -themed Zeitgest movie series.

Another video was made for "Loner", consisting of live and fan footage.

The cover artwork was unveiled on April 4th 2013, created by the London-based studio, Zip Design. The cover depicts an 8-foot tall wicker "13" woven by British sculptor, Spencer Jenkins. The sculpture was set ablaze in the Buckinghamshire countryside and shot by photographer Jonathan Knowles, with the resulting inferno visible for miles. The construction of the woven numbers was featured in a behind-the-scenes video released by Zip Design, which was also shot by Knowles' team.

Released as Standard Edition CD in jewelcase, 2CD Deluxe Edition with bonus disc, LP and Super Deluxe Box Set featuring deluxe double CD album (without Naïveté in Black, however snippets of this songs are featured in the DVD documentary), 12" heavyweight (180g) vinyl album in a gatefold sleeve, exclusive DVD containing "Black Sabbath - The Re-union" documentary, plus 5 behind-the-scenes videos, Limited Edition Art Print, 13 exclusive photographic prints, hand written album lyrics.
