The new edition of Music Week is out now.
In this week's cover story, Music Week asks Official Charts Company chief executive Martin Talbot to lift the lid on the decision to revamp the singles chart. It's a move designed to speed up the chart, generate more hits and break more artists - and full details are revealed exclusively in this week's magazine.
In our Big Interview, SoundCloud’s director of content partnerships, Raoul Chatterjee, tells Music Week why they want to transform the streaming platform from a great place for sharing music to a great place for sharing music and making money.
Elsewhere, Concord Bicycle Music’s CEO Scott Pascucci takes us inside their acquisition of Imagem Music Group, and Bestival founder Rob Da Bank sheds light on their new event set to take place in Bali next year.
