The Cure’s ‘Disintegration’ expanded 3CD reissue to be released Feb. 16

The Cure, circa late '80s

We know there’s been enormous interest in the forthcoming 3CD reissue of The Cure’s 1989 classic Disintegration — our report on the set’s tracklist remains this site’s most-viewed post ever — and now we can tell you when it’ll arrive: Feb. 16, according to the ever-vigilant Chain of Flowers fan site.

Like previous Cure reissues, the set will feature a remastered edition of the album on one disc, plus a second disc with 20 of Robert Smith’s home and studio demos recorded in 1988 and 1989, including album cuts and b-sides, plus previously unreleased tracks “Noheart,” “Esten” and “Delirious Night”

The third disc, labled Entreat Plus, features an expanded, 12-track edition of that 1990 live album, fleshed out to include live versions of each song off Disintegration, assembled in order, from a concert at London’s Wembley Arena in 1989.

UPDATE 12/18/09: Pre-order the ‘Disintegration: 20th Anniversary Edition’ on Amazon.
