- This week, we welcome indie giants PIAS to the cover of Music Week. The independent music company is rebooting itself for the music biz in 2018 and beyond, and top execs Jason Rackham, Jane Third and Josh Nicoll are here to tell us how they will change the game.
- Also in this action-packed issue, rock behemoths Biffy Clyro give us the lowdown on their new MTV Unplugged album — and we talk to MTV about their plans to revive the classic acoustic format.
- Elsewhere, we look at the Afrobeats explosion; preview the BBC’s Biggest Weekend festival; and analyse the biz reaction to YouTube’s new subscription service. And there’s a huge Education special report plus a gigantic celebration of 25 years of legendary dance label Positiva.
- And there’s more! The Black Eyed Peas' Fergie takes on The Aftershow; Camelphat & Elderbrook’s Cola is the subject of this week’s Hitmakers; rap sensation Saweetie crashlands in On The Radar and there’s all our usual enhanced news, new music, analysis, charts coverage and market share statistics.
