A world exclusive with the one and only Morrissey, plus Ryan Adams, Rankin, Eli Roth, John Slattery and more...
Our ridiculously star-studded run of summer issues continues this fortnight. Gracing our cover this issue – and looking extremely cool we must say – is the icon that is Morrissey.
Always a bit wary of the press, the Mancunian star talks exclusively to Hot Press as his new album World Peace Is None Of Your Business kicks Mozzamania into gear.
On the agenda? Global politics, his new album, the Royal Family, Tony Blair, Brendan Behan, Bashar al-Assad and much more, while he opens up about his recent health issues for the first time.
The heavyweight interviews don't stop there, however, as alt. country star Ryan Adams looks forward to 40, discusses his use of medicinal marijuana and gets in touch with his fans through writer-at-large Olaf Tyaransen.
Elsewhere, renowned photographer Rankin chats to Craig Fitzpatrick about his new Sky Arts series Collabor8te, expounds on Bono and Bob Geldof, and tells us why he doesn't see a difference between photographing the Queen Of England or the man on the street.
In the Hot Press interview, author Rob Doyle confronts his wild past and those Bret Easton Ellis comparisons.
Music World is packed with names such as Adebisi Shank and Royal Blood, while Critical Mass sees new albums from La Roux, Pixie Lott and Tom Petty assessed and the big, recent Irish festivals relived.
You'll also find forensic examinations of the Gaza situation and how the State betrayed child sexual abuse victim Louise O'Keeffe in our political coverage.
Plus, as ever, all our regulars and so much more.
That's the new issue of Hot Press (Morrissey cover), hitting shelves Thursday, August 7.
