In the latest issue of Classic Pop, we have a world exclusive interview with the New Power Generation and those behind the extraordinary forthcoming deluxe boxset of Prince’s Diamonds And Pearls album, which features a wealth of unheard material.

We also meet Kylie Minogue’s songwriting team who’ve worked on her Tension LP – the most hotly-anticipated new release of the summer – and catch up with Soft Cell’s Marc Almond and Dave Ball about the duo’s batch of fresh releases with Dave also discussing for the first time the accident that left him an induced coma.

Elsewhere, as his debut solo album The Gift gets the deluxe reissue treatment, Midge Ure reflects on his 1985 annus mirabilis and Róisín Murphy reveals all about her stunning new LP, Hit Parade.

We also delve into The The’s powerful Infected and take an in-depth look at the back catalogue of OMD for our Album By Album feature.

Our latest classic album is Fleetwood Mac’s superlative Tango In The Night, author Adam Steiner unpicks the intricacies of David Bowie’s Ashes To Ashes and we kick back to bring you our guide to 80s smooth soul.

In our packed reviews section we give our verdict on new album releases including Kylie Minogue, Pretenders, Rick Astley and Andy Taylor plus there’s a comprehensive reissues section featuring Midge Ure, Prince, Jimmy Somerville, Electronic, Depeche Mode and much more. We also check out live shows by Blur, P!nk, Sparks and more.
