LENNOX HANGS UP HER PEN

Annie Lennox hasn’t written a pop song in 10 years and inspiration is unlikely to strike soon. “Oh, years ago the muse left me,” she admits, perhaps an unfortunate by-product of finding happiness with her third husband Dr Mitch Besser. “I don’t know that I had to be unhappy to write, but I often was unhappy and the feelings were predominantly painful, sad and melancholic. There is a beauty in that, without question.” Lennox recently took to the Sadler’s Wells stage for An Evening of Music and Conversation – her first solo show in London for many years. For somebody so familiar and ingrained in popular culture she does her best to keep away from the public eye. Lennox told the Sunday Times magazine: “I tried to avoid red carpets and keep my head down. This whole world of celebrity they talk about now, it’s completely vacuous. I can’t stand the star bullshit. I’ve realised over the years just how uncomfortable it makes me feel.” The star’s solo albums Diva and Medusa were recently reissued on vinyl.

About Classic Pop

In the new Classic Pop we celebrate 30 years of Kylie Minogue – from the PWL early days through to the iconic noughties classics and her new No.1 album, Golden. We also take an in-depth look at Kylie’s Fever for our Classic Album feature. As a special treat for Kylie fans, we have an exclusive limited edition special fan pack issue of the magazine available with four fantastic A4 glossy art cards of the star. Subscribers will receive an exclusive version of the issue with a collectable cover. Elsewhere, we are granted a rare audience with Scritti Politti's Green Gartside, we serve up our Top 15 sophisti-pop albums of all time and Prefab Sprout feature in The Lowdown. We chat to Kim Appleby about her new TV show and the prospect of new music; Sophie Ellis-Bextor talks to us about her new album of orchestral reworkings of her back catalogue and Daphne & Celeste return to the pop fray. Our album reviews section features Sting and Shaggy, CHVRCHES and Alison Moyet. This month’s reissues section includes John Foxx, The Human League and Brian Eno. On the live front, we check out gigs by Erasure, Morrissey, Paul Weller and Lloyd Cole.
