The Smiths were a bit off their game when it came to unleashing another live song from their archives this week. This week's live song was posted today instead of Monday, and besides being somewhat tardy they've opted to share only short snippet of the recording. Regardless, a tiny bit of The Smiths is better than entire catalogs of many, many bands. In that spirit, enjoy a taste of "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out" which was captured in August 15th, 1986 at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago below:

UPDATE (10/3): The Smiths have now uploaded the full version of the song. Stream below or on Spotify.





Fans are encouraged to post memories of The Queen Is Dead and/or The Smiths on social media with a fitting hashtag (for example, #TQID2017) for inclusion on The Queen Is Dead official tribute site. View the page here.

The Queen Is Dead will be reissued as a 2CD, 5LP, and 3CD/1DVD box on October 20th with previously unreleased material. The material (original, demos, and previously unreleased material) included on these expanded editions was remastered by engineering guru Bill Inglot who worked with the Smiths previously on The Very Best Of The Smiths (Dan Hersch also contributed to that 2001 compilation).

All three editions of The Queen Is Dead are available to pre-order through Amazon. 2CD, 3CD/1DVD, 5LP
