352-cover-web This month's issue of Q is a celebration of true independent vision as we feature both Florence + The Machine in an exclusive cover story – AND celebrate the greatest British indie albums, and the labels behind them, in a special feature.

On the eve of her biggest tour to date, Florence Welch speaks to Q in her first major interview since making Glastonbury's Pyramid Stage her own as she stepped-up to fill in for Dave Grohl's Foo Fighters at this year's festival.

With unique backstage access at her recent Dublin show, she tells Ted Kessler how she put chaos and heartbreak behind her.

Plus this month we celebrate the British indie scene with a special section introduced by Noel Gallagher and dedicated to the best labels and the 30 greatest albums and 20 best singles they've released, reshaping rock in the process.

Also this month, we join Muse at an intimate – by their standards – gig, hit the road with Blur to find out what the future holds for Damon Albarn and co and meet the 80s wild boys Duran Duran to discuss treading the line between pure pop and the avant-garde.

Q readers give The Prodigy a grilling in this month's Cash For Questions, Tinie Tempah delivers his 10 Commandments and The Black Keys' (and now Arcs leader) Dan Auerbach takes us through the songs that shaped his life, plus there are exclusive, feature interviews with Father John Misty and John "Johnny Rotten" Lydon.

With definitive reviews of new albums by Prince, John Newman and Kurt Vile, plus all the music news that matters, Q is the only music magazine you need for the month ahead.
