We’re delighted to announce that Issue 4 of Classic Pop magazine is on sale today! Issue four features our first female cover star in the form of the indefatigable Annie Lennox – striking front-person of the Eurythmics, award winning solo artist and outspoken campaigner. We have an exclusive interview with Annie as well as a complete lowdown on the works of the Eurythmics and even throw in a poster for good measure.
