Thanks to the very cool interview, which Nic (Impulsive Compulsive Insane) and Shaun (BareNaked-Bar)
did with BNL (during the official Press-Day after the resent UK Tour in London) we know that:

Excerpt from the Interview (London, May 7th 2004)
Steve:
We took For You from Glasgow show and mixed it down the other night for a radio edit or something,
they were looking for a version.
I think they’re going to start working For You on American radio so we wanted a live version as well.
Ed:
The management sent us three versions recorded on the American tour,
one from Grand Forks, one from Calgary and one from Dallas.
They just sent us the mp3s and said we need a live version.
They’re going to release For You as a single over there and they said they wanted to include a live version,
so pick one of these three.
And we were like, “Last night in Glasgow was better than all those three”,
so Steve and Jim mixed it in Aberdeen. Just spent the day mixing it and we sent it off to them.
It’s great to be in a position to be able to make use of the performances that you do.
