* This week in Music Week, it's our annual special BRIT Awards preview. It's the essential guide to this year's ceremony and our cover story features BRITs chairman – and Universal Music UK boss – David Joseph. Alongside creative director Misty Buckley, he talks us through the all-new vision for UK music's biggest night.

 * Also in our BRITs special, we take an in-depth look at the making of the five Albums Of The Year. Lewis Capaldi, Dave, Michael Kiwanuka, Stormzy and Harry Styles all made the shortlist - we grill the artists, producers, songwriters and executives behind the records.

 * Elsewhere in an action-packed issue, BPI boss Geoff Taylor talks us through the 2020 big talking points; we chart the unstoppable rise of Dave's management firm Neighbourhood; and BRIT Awards legend Maggie Crowe takes on The Aftershow.

 * Plus! BRIT-nominated AJ Tracey banger Ladbroke Grove is the subject of this week's Hitmakers; BRITs Rising Star contender Joy Crookes takes over On The Radar; PR legend Jonathan Morrish talks us through the highlights of the 40 BRITs ceremonies; and there's some big non-BRITs-related news from 6 Music and BMG. And there’s all our usual enhanced news, new music, analysis, charts coverage and market share statistics.
