On 24 February 2014, a newly remastered special edition of ''Your Arsenal'' was released. Somewhat controversially, the original version of "[[Tomorrow]]" was replaced with the US remix. The original album artwork was used for this release, however, the typeface font on the front cover and the photo on the back cover have been changed, as was the case with the 2012 ''[[Viva Hate]]'' remaster. The CD version also included a DVD containing the [[Mountain View, California 1991-10-31 (Morrissey concert) | October 31st]] show of the [[Kill Uncle Tour]].
