Description

Widely considered to be both The Smiths' finest hour and one of the greatest albums ever made, The Queen Is Dead has cast a significant influence over subsequent generations since it was first released in the summer of 1986. The album features several of the band's high-water marks including the title track and "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out," as well as the iconic singles "The Boy With The Thorn In His Side" and "Bigmouth Strikes Again." 

Now Warner Bros/Rhino will release an
expanded 5LP box set featuring a new 2017 master of the album, additional recordings (demos, B-sides & alternative takes) and the Live In Boston recording, all housed in a lift off box with two double gatefolds and one singleThis reissue represents the first time that The Smiths' back catalog has been revisited in such a way.

"You cannot continue to record and simply hope that your audience will approve, or that average critics will approve, or that radio will approve," says
Morrissey. "You progress only when you wonder if an abnormally scientific genius would approve – and this is the leap The Smiths took with The Queen Is Dead." Johnny Marr adds, "The Queen Is Dead was epic to make and epic to live."
