In the latest issue of Classic Pop, we have a Wham! world exclusive interview with Andrew Ridgeley plus Pepsi and Shirlie who look back on their life inside the legendary pop group ahead of the release of a new singles collection and hotly-anticipated Netflix documentary.

Once more back in the Duran Duran fold, in an emotional exclusive interview, guitarist Andy Taylor reveals all about his forthcoming solo album as well as his surprise reunion with the iconic band for an upcoming Halloween-flavoured covers record. There’s further Duran-related action, too, as we take an in-depth look at their back catalogue in our Album By Album feature and catch up with founder member Stephen Duffy who talks Classic Pop through The Lilac Time’s stunning new long-player, Dance Till All The Stars Come Down.

Elsewhere, fresh from his Glastonbury triumphs, Rick Astley gives us a sneak preview of his new LP Are We There Yet? Our latest classic album feature is on Kate Bush’s The Sensual World and Kevin Rowland shines a light on the transformative experience that inspired Dexys’ latest project, The Feminine Divine.

We also give some much-needed love to Elvis Costello’s underrated tour de force The Delivery Man and catch up with Paul Hardcastle as he unveils a new career retrospective boxset.

In our packed reviews section we give our verdict on new album releases including Blur, Dexys and Soft Cell plus there’s a comprehensive reissues section featuring Fun Boy Three, Pet Shop Boys, ABC, Wham!, David Sylvian and much more. We also check out triumphant live shows by Peter Gabriel and James.
