The 2017 BRIT Awards take centre stage in the new issue of Music Week, out today.
Sony Music UK & Ireland chairman/CEO and BRIT Awards chairman Jason Iley takes on the Big Interview to talk BRITs, grime and Sony’s drive to be No.1.
We go inside the campaigns for all of the albums nominated for MasterCard British Album Of The Year and grill BPI chief Geoff Taylor on reinventing the UK’s biggest music awards ceremony. We also catch up with BRIT nominee Alan Walker and run all the BRITs numbers that matter.
Elsewhere, as Rag’N’Bone Man hits No.1 with a huge Week 1 sale, Music Week investigates whether the great British new artist drought is finally over. We also chat to MTV EMA executive producer Richard Godfrey and The SSE Arena, Wembley's general manager John Drury about the EMAs' return to London for the first time since 1996.
On top of that, we shine a spotlight on the very best new talent in On The Radar and take a look at the most innovative sync deals in the market. We also have in-depth analysis from Alan Jones on the latest charts.
