Available from WH Smith, Tesco, Waitrose, independent newsagents and Eason, this month’s cover feature celebrates the relationship between music and movies with our Top 40 rundown of the all-time best pop soundtracks.

We also have an exclusive interview with Nick Heyward who returns with his first solo album in more than a decade – it’s a stunning record that will surely figure highly on many ‘best of 2017’ lists.

Also back is Louise Wener who’s reconvened Britpop favourites Sleeper for a number of live shows this year. We talk to the frontwoman-turned-novelist as she relearns her hits for the first time in 20 years.

The last surviving member of The Spiders From Mars, Woody Woodmansey, gives us the inside track on working with David Bowie on some of his most revered albums of the early-70s and we meet the Art of Noise ahead of the 30th anniversary reissue of their platinum-selling LP In Visible Silence.

Cyndi Lauper’s quirky debut She’s So Unusual is this issue’s Classic Album and we put Ultravox’s career under the microscope in our Lowdown feature.

90s favourites Omar and Jesus Jones also stop by for a chat and our packed reviews section includes new albums from the aforementioned Nick Heyward plus Arcade Fire and Bronski Beat. On the live front, we check out what’s likely to be the final Stone Roses show ever plus cracking gigs from Kraftwerk, Chic, Phil Collins and Midnight Oil among others.

Enjoy the issue!
