In the latest issue of Classic Pop, we have the definitive interview with a-ha’s Morten, Magne and Paul who reveal all about their complex band dynamic and new album, True North. Could this be the trio’s final farewell?

Elsewhere, we have an exclusive chat with Duran Duran’s Nick Rhodes who takes us inside the band’s great ‘lost’ album, the newly-reissued Medazzaland, and also catch up with Simple Minds’ Jim Kerr and Charlie Burchill as they unleash their latest life-affirming long-player Direction Of The Heart.

Betty Boo tells us how Classic Pop played a vital role in her comeback album, Boomerang, and we meet Sam Brown to hear how she’s battled back against the odds for a long-awaited new solo record.

Kick by INXS is our latest classic album and we also serve up Classic Pop’s personal selection of the Top 20 double A-side singles. We put the back catalogue of Thompson Twins and Tom Bailey under the microscope for our Album By Album analysis while Nik Kershaw’s The Works gets some much-needed love in our Forget Me Nots feature.

As a new retrospective boxset is released, we also look at the groundbreaking way director John Hughes weaved 80s pop into his movies.

Our comprehensive reviews section includes our featured artists above as well as Soft Cell, Erasure, David Bowie, Dexys Midnight Runners, Seal, Debbie Harry and many more.
