The band has let it be known (6/12/21) that "Faith" will be out on picture disc for RSD:

QuoteFAITH - The Cure's third studio album - marks its 40th Anniversary this year, and to celebrate the album will be released on picture disc for the very first time. The new pressing has been overseen by Robert Smith and will be available in record stores today as part of RSD Drops. https://recordstoreday.com/

I bought one last weekend, as well as a belated purchase of the Seventeen Seconds Picture disc (that they still had in stock from 2020 RSD). Ordered online, but hasn't arrived yet.
I think the abstract art of both of these releases will look really groovy on a picture disc 🤩. 
I'll post pictures when they arrive.

Listening to the Faith picture disc today. Side 1 is the white picture (like the cover) and side 2 is a darker version. Here's photos for those interested...
