American art-rock singer St. Vincent fronts the cover of the newest issue of Hot Press!
In a highly revealing interview, one of this generation's most influential artists talks about her hugely ambitious live show, the Harvey Weinstein scandal, Donald Trump and her Irish roots. Plus her reflections on David Bowie, fronting Nirvana, and life in the tabloid spotlight with her supermodel ex, Cara Delevingne.
Elsewhere in the new issue, Jason O'Toole meets with 'Home Loan Hero' David Hall for the Hot Press Interview. In a fiercely outspoken interview, David Hall – the man behind iCare and interim CEO of Console in the aftermath of the financial scandal at the charity – declares his intention to run for the Presidency, despite being full of praise for President Michael D. Higgins.
In our music section, we meet with some of the contemporary artists - both at home and abroad - who have been making waves with their new releases. We speak to the hugely influential English composer Benjamin Clementine, jazz supremo Gregory Porter, and Lyra - one of the emerging Irish artists who contributed to the tribute version of the The Joshua Tree for Laura Lynn charity.
We also recall some extraordinary past encounters with Liam Gallagher, as part of a series of past interviews that will celebrate the release of Covered In Glory: The Hot Press Covers Book.
Celebrating with us are Ticketmaster Ireland, who are making their 20th year of operating in Ireland this month. We speak to Managing Director Keith English about the humble origins of the business, the men who turned a small idea into a big reality, and how the company helped bring international artists flooding into Ireland.
In our film section this issue, we talk to Hollywood actor Ezra Miller about his role in DC's newest superhero blockbuster, Justice League. We also give the final verdict on Conor McGregor's much-hyped documentary, Notorious, as well as reviews on all the latest releases.
In our Frontlines section, we investigate some of the serious issues with the Irish Army, as well as speaking to a former member who expresses major concerns ranging from pay and welfare to security, resources and dangerous equipment. We also partner up with the Global Drugs Survey once again for their 2018 study, and tell readers how they can take part.
On top of all that, we have the usual previews, reviews and news that you'd expect from Hot Press, including coverage of the newest releases from The Corrs, Morrissey, Kelly Clarkson and more.
