We're delighted to reveal Mimi Webb as cover star for our new February 2023 issue
One of the most exciting new names in pop, as we head at top speed towards Mimi's debut album 'Amelia', her ascent to the A-list seems a foregone conclusion. Via a string of remarkable bangers, bops and ballads, she doesn't just stand out from the crowd - she's leading it from the front. Plus, she turned up to our shoot despite being Really Quite Poorly. That kind of commitment deserves praise. What a trooper.
Mimi Webb is one of three cover acts for our February 2023 issue, which also packs variants featuring Biig Piig and The Murder Capital. They lead off an issue typically packed with loads of our faves, as we get the new year rolling in style.
There's musical mastermind SG Lewis, quickly becoming a label for the most exciting bops, and chart-topping success story RAYE, who proves you can't keep a good popster down. Indie legends Circa Waves are present and correct, as is Joesef, as he drops a debut album full of promise.
Elsewhere, we introduce hip young gunslingers Nell Mescal, Somebody's Child and Connie Campsie in Hype, run through the albums you need to be ready for in 2023, ask silly questions to Priestgate, head down the front with Muna, The Amazons, Holly Humberstone, Blossoms and Black Country, New Road, plus loads, loads more.
