As Imelda May and Wild Youth unleash their highly anticipated new projects on the world, we sat down with these two acclaimed Irish acts to bring you two action-packed, must-read interviews – in the new issue of Hot Press, out next week and available to pre-order now!
Imelda is back – and bolder than ever – with her star-studded sixth studio album, 11 Past The Hour. From her home in England, she reflects on feminism, love, the far-right, rejecting Catholicism, embracing paganism, and her creative camaraderie with Bono. It is a memorable encounter with one of the modern greats of Irish music – and there's an Imelda cover to celebrate it!
Meanwhile, as they release their acclaimed second EP, Forever Girl, Wild Youth’s Conor O'Donohoe and David Whelan open up about some of the big issues of the moment, including online trolling, mental health, fans, vaccines, and the power of living in the moment.
You can also expect interviews with For Those I Love, Marianne Faithfull, Dropkick Murphys, John Spillane, Declan O’Rourke and lots more in what is a packed issue of Hot Press. Plus – we take an in-depth look at the impact of Covid-19 on the Irish music industry, and talk to a selection of key players about the future of live entertainment on these shores.
