Pre-order the new issue – celebrating Bob Dylan's 80th birthday – below.
On May 24th, Robert Zimmerman aka Bob Dylan celebrates his 80th birthday. In a special issue to mark the occasion (out next week, and available to pre-order now), Hot Press writers – including Dylan experts Anne Margaret Daniel and Pat Carty – explore different aspects of the extraordinary legacy of the world’s greatest songwriter. Meanwhile, a selection of musicians, artists and bands join in the celebrations, paying personal and collective tribute to the prodigious inspirational power of the Minnesota-born legend. Bob Dylan’s 80th birthday offers a special moment to reflect on – and hopefully to understand afresh – the poetry, the flair and the influence of a mercurial genius who changed music forever.
Elsewhere in the issue, we talk to St Vincent, who's back with the acclaimed Daddy’s Home – an album inspired by the release of her father from prison. In a flip cover special, she talks openly and with remarkable honesty about her extraordinary life – and the attitudes and ideas that have made her one of the world’s most challenging and revered artists.
If that's not exciting enough, you can also look forward to interviews with Paul Weller; Moby; Lisa McInerney; Noel Hogan and Bronagh Gallagher; and more.
Plus: Why the College of Psychiatrists of Ireland got it hopelessly wrong about cannabis and youth mental health.
