Pink covers the March edition of Music Week

For our March issue, Music Week is delighted to welcome global superstar Pink to our cover, as we meet to trail her incredible new album Trustfall.

In an epic cover story, Pink (real name Alecia Moore) reflects on her groundbreaking journey so far, and is joined by manager Roger Davies, RCA’s John Fleckenstein and David Dollimore, plus Barrie Marshall. In this career-spanning interview, she opens up about artistic control, the big decisions that changed her life, songwriting, family, and why she’ll never stop giving her all – not to mention risking life and limb – on stage. 

This is the inspirational story of how she challenged a host of industry conventions and still became one of the biggest artists on the planet.



This month’s Music Week Interview sees Musiio co-founder and SoundCloud VP, music intelligence Hazel Savage talk AI, equality and what it takes to be an entrepreneur in the modern industry. A winner at last year’s Music Week Women In Music Awards, Savage has emerged as a key authority on AI and tech in recent years, and her big sit down with Music Week is not to be missed.

The 2 Tone Entertainment founder traces his career, from starting out in clubland, to working with a roster that includes Sam Smith, Charli XCX, Jessica Agombar and many more. Along with speaking out on A&R, breaking talent and hitmaking, he outlines why, when it comes to new music, our indie publishers are going toe to toe with major labels.
