CMAT, Declan McKenna and Poppy are the cover stars for November 2023’s edition of Dork, out now.
By our measure, CMAT is nothing less than the world’s greatest pop star - but with her new album ‘CrazyMad, For Me’, she’s created her masterpiece. A five-star classic in its own time, it's a big swing that hits a home run.
Undoubtedly Dork's anointed prince of indie pop, Dec is back with a brand new album, 'What Happened To The Beach?’, on the way, and a whole new vibe. "The end of making this album is almost like the end of an era for me and the start of a new one," he explains. "It’s a really exciting place to be at.”
Exploring uncharted sonic territories, infusing dance beats with a fearless exploration of identity and empowerment, new album ‘Zig!’ is POPPY at her very best. With pulsating rhythms and candid, empowering lyrics that celebrate authenticity and self-discovery, we're delighted to welcome her to the cover of Dork for the first time.
You’ll find in-depth interviews and photoshoots will all three in our new issue.
