Today sees Morrissey’s Bona Drag re-released amongst 36 other artist's limited edition albums to commemorate HMV's Centenary.
For all intents and purposes, this is the 2010 Major Minor expanded 20th anniversary edition of the record (not forgetting it was re-pressed again in 2016 too), except in coloured vinyl and has a HMV obi strip with the 100 years information.
Along the edge of the strip 'teal vinyl' is mentioned.
There is no matrix message on either record.
The sleeve contains the Zodiac car picture foldout poster:

First mentioned last August and 3 months after the digital release of Cosmic Dancer, today sees the official release date of the double A-side black vinyl.
This release appears to be very widely available with HMV, Mporium, most Amazons & Indies having good stocks.
Amazon & HMV briefly listed the release date as January 29, both revising it shortly thereafter.
It will more than likely chart quite high on the vinyl singles chart based on previous releases.

There is no matrix message on either side of the record.
