Featuring Carly Rae Jepsen, Mura Masa, Jockstrap, Flohio and more.
Get your ‘We <3 Jeppo’ signs at the ready: this month we are incredibly excited to welcome the one and only Carly Rae Jepsen to the cover. One of pop’s most effervescent stars, we caught up with the Canadian singer when she was in the UK earlier this summer for her incredible Somerset House show. Ahead of the release of new album ‘The Loneliest Time’ next month, we dig into the star’s forthcoming fifth record, which sees her becoming even more ambitious and open.
Elsewhere this month, we talk Noughties and nostalgia with Mura Masa ahead of his new record ‘demon time’, we delve into the brilliant new solo record from The xx’s Oliver Sim, and take a peek into the weird and wonderful world of Jockstrap’s debut album, ‘I Love You Jennifer B’. We also sit down with Alex G, as he begins to open up his world on ‘God Save The Animals’, talk FLOHIO’s long-awaited first album, and discover the bright first steps of Wunderhorse.
We’re also getting ready to head to Germany later this month for the full scale return of Reeperbahn - courtesy of a catch up with Nuha Ruby Ra - while in this month’s Neu, there are profiles with soon-to-be-icons Channel Tres, piri & tommy and Pretty Sick.
Plus! We take a closer look at all twelve of the albums shortlisted for the 2022 Mercury Prize with FREE NOW in our very special dedicated section, that features interviews with the likes of Self Esteem, Yard Act, Kojey Radical, Gwenno and many more.
Our new September 2022 issue is available to read online right now, and, you can order your very own physical copy of the mag and it’ll come whizzing through your letterbox in the next few days.
