“Matt Healy himself makes for a quite fascinating subject – a proper British pop star, of the sort we haven’t seen in some time. He is equal parts ambition and self-reflection…”
So observes Q’s Laura Barton at the start of a candid and revealing encounter with The 1975 for this month’s cover feature. Having just released their second album, I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It, we meet the band in the middle of epic, emotional journey, as Healy opens up about his demons, his confessional lyrics, his relationship with the women in his life and much more.
Plus this month print editions of Q come with our specially curated CD, New Adventures In Sound, a 15-track selection of new talents. Check out the full track listing now which includes Sunflower Bean, Pixx, Yak, Money and more*.
While The 1975 and the acts featured on our compilation are rock’n’roll tales in the making, this month Q also features a host of bands behind some of the greatest stories ever told.
Keith Richards speaks to us about life in The Rolling Stones as he prepares for the opening of the band’s forthcoming Exhibitionism exhibition, while we revisit the magic and the drama of Oasis’ Manchester Maine Road homecoming.
Plus in a 14-page special Bobby Gillespie and Andrew Innes relive 30 years of creating landmark music in Primal Scream.
This month we also get insight from a diverse selection of musical visionaries. Grimes explains the unlikely role Mariah Carey played in pushing her to art-punk’s cutting edge; Parquet Courts discuss how a heady mix of anxiety, exhaustion and perky tunes have propelled them to pole position amongst America’s underground bands; Chrvches conquer stage fright and Japanese hearts as Q joins them on their world tour; while this month’s Mavericks Underworld recall 20 years of taking dance music into uncharted frontiers… shouting lager, lager...
The Cult play mental chess with Q readers in this month’s Cash For Questions, John Lydon delivers 10 Commandments for life NOT anarchy and Nile Rodgers relives the Last Time he had cocaine psychosis, but got better!
With reviews of new records from PJ Harvey, The Last Shadow Puppets, Kanye West, Cate Le Bon, Pet Shop Boys and more, plus live reports on Florence + The Machine and Wolf Alice, Q is the only music magazine you need for the month ahead… Get your copy from Tuesday, 15 March, 2016.
