In the latest Classic Pop, we meet Cyndi Lauper for a freewheeling exclusive interview that takes in everything from the icon’s classic 80s albums to her latterday dance music reinvention, K-pop diets and pole dancing.

As Mica Paris returns with a new gospel album, we talk to the UK soul star about her musical roots and friendship with Prince plus we have an in-depth interview with Go West’s Peter Cox and Richard Drummie who spill the beans on their songwriting partnership and BRIT Award-winning glory days.

Elsewhere, our reviewers round up their favourite new albums, reissues, compilations and books from the past 12 months for our Best of 2020 awards.

Talking Heads’ wonderful Remain In Light is this issue’s Classic Album and we delve into the Spandau Ballet photo archive for unseen shots of the band from 1980 as they record Journeys To Glory and make their first tentative TV appearances.

ABBA’s back catalogue goes under the microscope for our Album By Album feature and the UK’s biggest-selling singles artist of the 80s, Shakin’ Stevens, looks back on his career plus Classic Pop grabs a chat with the legendary George Benson.

We shine a spotlight on Susanna Hoffs’ debut solo LP When You’re A Boy for our Forget Me Not feature and also catch up with Per Gessle and Matt Bianco’s Mark Reilly for some illuminating Q&As.

In our expanded reviews section we have new releases including The Avalanches, Paul McCartney, Deacon Blue and Gary Barlow while our bumper reissues coverage features David Bowie, Evelyn ‘Champagne King’, Marc Almond, Shakin’ Stevens, Toyah and Elvis Costello.
