New edition of Music Week out now

The new issue of Music Week is out now, and kick-starting our huge BRIT Awards preview issue is our cover feature on chairman of the BRIT Awards and chairman/CEO of Sony Music UK, Jason Iley. In a revealing interview, he sits down with us to talk Ed Sheeran, the future of the awards and why he’s not about to give up the day job…

And that’s just for starters. Inside the issue we give you the inside story behind the records competing for British Album Of The Year, with top names discussing Dua Lipa, Stormzy, Rag’N’Bone Man, J Hus and Ed Sheeran. Plus, we celebrate 10 years of the BRITs Critics’ Choice award by speaking to past winners, and also catch up with this year’s recipient Jorja Smith. On top of that, there’s also BRITs news from BPI/BRIT Awards chief executive Geoff Taylor and nominee Jax Jones.

Elsewhere in the issue, ex-Kaiser Chiefs man Nick Hodgson tells us about making Ruby in the latest edition of Hitmakers while Spinal Tap’s legendary bassist Derek Smalls reveals the life lessons he’s learned throughout his career in what has to be the most surreal Aftershow to date…

Our big story this week – and possibly the biggest news of any week! – is that the nominations for the Music Week Awards 2018 are officially in. You can find out who made the cut inside.

Rising star and Jeff Buckley obsessive Isaac Gracie appears in On The Radar, Echo Ladies appear in Making Waves and River Island team up with Endor in Sync Story. Plus, there’s all our usual news, analysis, charts coverage and market share statistics.
