The Smiths' self-titled debut is 35 years old today


The Smiths’ eponymous debut album was released 35 years ago today (February 20).

To celebrate this momentous anniversary, we’re giving away two vinyl copies of the album (2011 remaster), along with two copies of The Queen Is Dead (the 5LP box featuring the 2017 master of the album, additional recordings and the ‘Live In Boston’ set).
