THE QUEEN LIVES ON, BUT
THE SMITHS ARE DEAD
7/20/17

Warner Bros. will re-release seminal British album The Queen Is Dead by The Smiths on 10/20. It follows the band’s #1 success with a previously unheard version of “The Boy With the Thorn in His Side” (Rhino) on the U.K.’s Record Store Day Singles Chart.

The Queen Is Dead, first released in 1986, hit #2 in the U.K. and received widespread critical acclaim. Its newly mastered and expanded version features several of the band’s finest moments, including the title track and “There Is a Light That Never Goes Out,” as well as the iconic “The Boy With the Thorn in His Side” and “Bigmouth Strikes Again.” Eight previously unreleased tracks include demo and early versions.

All configurations—digital and streaming as well as three physical formats—will feature the 2017 remaster of the original album. Fans will be able to choose between a deluxe 3CD/1 DVD box set, a 2CD version and a 5LP box.

The announcement follows renewed rumors of a reunion, which were rubbished on Wednesday by band member Johnny Marr, who told a hopeful fan to "get a grip."
