The album was released in three formats: digital download, CD/DVD-ROM combo, and triple vinyl.
The digital download and CD releases feature the same track listing. The iTunes version lists the album title as Y34RZ3R0R3MIX3D, using the letter I in place of the numeral 1 when compared to the album's cover art.
The bonus DVD-ROM included with the CD release contains multi-track files from the entire Year Zero album in GarageBand and Ableton Live formats, as well as a demo version of the Ableton Live software, and 44100 Hz WAV-format files of the album's individual track portions, for use in any non-linear music editing software such as Cakewalk Sonar or Pro Tools.
Five songs are exclusive to the vinyl pressing, including the Switch remix of "Capital G", which was previously released on the "Capital G" single; and two different mixes of "Vessel". The LP was pressed on triple 180 Gram virgin vinyl at Nashville's historic United Record Pressing and features a triple gatefold jacket. The Saul Williams remix of "Survivalism" (previously featured on some editions of the "Survivalism" single) and the shortest of Bill Laswell's three remixes of "Vessel" are not included on the vinyl.
