Is there such a thing as a US pressing of this album that has the custom artwork labels AND the custom inner sleeve? It seems like every copy I’ve seen has just one or the other.

Is there a new pressing of this?I bought one today from HMV with the barcode 0602547875549. It doesn't seem to be listed? It has a sticker on the front saying 'Remastered by Robert Smith. 180gram vinyl. Contains a download voucher.'
