English songstress Florence Welch covers this week’s issue of British music magazine NME.
The 25-year-old Florence and The Machine lead vocalist rocks her usual vintage chic style on the cover, wearing a white blouse with a vest. Flo dons a maroon brim hat on top of her signature red-hair with bangs to complete the look.
The ‘Shake It Out’ singer excitedly talks to the magazine about her initial reaction to when she heard that R&B singer Beyonce cited her as one of the inspiration for her latest album ’4′.
“My dad called me to tell me. So I’ve been really listening to the Beyonce album, like really intently, trying out maybe where she might have been influenced, but I’m not really sure. My favorite song on that record is ‘Countdown’… I love her she’s so sweet. I met her and she’s so gracious and she’s really beautiful”, Flo tells NME.
Coinciding with the release of their fourth studio album ‘Velociraptor!’ this week, English rock band Kasabian covers the latest issue of British music magazine NME.
The Leicester-based group is featured in a futuristic yet haunting cover that sees two of the band’s members each holding a skull. Lead vocalist Tom Meighan explains the new album to the magazine, calling it the album they have been “waiting to make”.
“(This is) going to surprise some people. We’ve never had an album with massive anthems on. I know it’s going to be massive and if I’m wrong cut my head off”, Tom points out to NME.
Kasabian’s new album is set to debut atop the UK albums chart this week, giving them their third consecutive No.1 album in the country.
The group is also featured in a limited special edition issue. Check it out below:
Probably one of the most underrated singers, Santigold covers the summer music issue of arts and style magazine Paper, looking rather quirky and arty with a funky black bob and Viktor & Rolf jacket.
The 35-year-old is working on a yet to be titled follow-up album to her critically acclaimed 2007 self-titled debut album, which earned her a Best Breakthrough Artist at the 2008 NME Awards and came in at No.6 on Rolling Stone’s list of best albums that year.
The “L.E.S. Artistes”, who is signed to Jay-Z’s record label ‘Roc Nation’, tells the magazine that King Hov is very impressed with the early mixes off her forthcoming album.
“He said it was going to be ‘an important album’. I wanted to make some epic songs. The whole record isn’t like that, but a few songs definitely are. I wanted to make them feel big. Peter Gabriel-big”.
Not one to shy away from any controversy, Lady Gaga gets sexual on the cover of NME magazine’s latest issues.
The pop provocateur covers the UK music magazine with a chic purple wig and dons a see-through latex Atsuko Kudo bodysuit, with her one hand squeezing her left boob, while her other hand is covering her unzipped lady garden hole. Sultry!
Gaga was lensed by photographer Mariano Vivanco for the broiling cover, with Billy B once again executing her flawless make-up and Nicola Formichetti styling her.
The quote “I Am Not Full Of Sh*t, Are You?” is spotted on the cover in big white letter and in the accompanying inside cover story Gaga lets it all rip. The “Judas” singer basically tells the critics to ‘f**k off’.
“Let me tell you something. If you f****** rip my hairbone and my wig off my f****** head, my shoes, my bra, every single thing on my body, and you throw me on a piano with a microphone, I will f****** make you cry. I feel I have been probed endlessly about who the f*** I am. I have been quite open about it. And still nobody seems to have a clue”, Gaga tells NME.
