On Friday, The Smiths began teasing yet another reissue of their seminal 1986 album The Queen Is Dead (the album, along with the rest of their catalog, was previously remastered by Johnny Marr and reissued in 2011).

Though no official details surrounding the release have been announced, the cat is somewhat out of the bag because an October 20th listing for two editions (2 CD and CD/DVD) appeared on the Amazon UK website. Amazon also posted (and quickly removed) details for the release, but not before fans were able to capture a screenshot.

If the removed tracklisting is to be believed, The Queen Is Dead has been remastered again, and it'll be released along with a disc of bonus material including demo versions and b-sides. The contents of the DVD portion still remain a mystery, however it's been rumored that it'll likely end up being a pro-shot recording of The Smiths' July 20th, 1986 gig at Salford University along with several videos from The Queen Is Dead era.

UPDATE (7/20): The Smiths have announced three expanded sets (2CD, 3CD/1DVD, and 5LP set) plus unleashed "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out" (Take 1). 

The tracklisting posted below is accurate. The third CD includes a live concert Live In Boston, and DVD portion is enhanced audio of The Queen Is Dead, along with  The Queen Is Dead A Film by Derek Jarman. Sadly the Salford University gig will NOT be included. Details are posted here.
