The Smiths' classic 1986 album The Queen Is Dead is set to be reissued later this year.

As Stereogum points out via Morrissey fan-forum Morrissey-Solo, a super deluxe edition of the seminal album will be available for pre-order on Amazon's UK site. The super deluxe edition will be available Oct 20 as both a two CD box set and a CD/DVD set, the first disc of the release features a fully-restored version of The Queen Is Dead while the second features a number of b-sides and rarities.

Produced by Smiths vocalist Morrissey and guitarist Johnny Marr, who worked predominantly with engineer Stephen Street, The Queen Is Dead was released in June 1986 on Rough Trade and is considered one of the defining album of the 1980s.
