Classic Pop  |  Nov/ Dec 2020  


In the latest Classic Pop we have an exclusive interview with Tears For Fears’ Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith as they look back on the extraordinary story behind their 1989 album, The Seeds Of Love – now reissued in expanded boxset form.

Also, given the boxset treatment, New Order’s Stephen Morris and Gillian Gilbert take us inside the transformational Power, Corruption & Lies LP and we meet Shakespears Sister’s Siobhan Fahey and Marcella Detroit as they release their career retrospective collection, Our History.

We reappraise ABC’s How To Be A… Zillionaire LP and take an in-depth look at the back catalogue of Sade via our Album By Album feature.

Kylie’s team of songwriters tell us how the star made new album Disco during lockdown and we also chat to Roland Gift, Howard Jones and La Roux.

The La’s legendary eponymous debut is our classic album, Tony James and Neal X reveal all about their time with the most dangerous band in pop, Sigue Sigue Sputnik, and we also count down our pick of the Top 20 80s girlband singles.

In our expanded reviews section we have new releases including Kylie Minogue, Gorillaz, Elvis Costello, Bruce Springsteen, Melanie C and Faithless, while our packed reissues section features Tears For Fears, New Order, Depeche Mode, Soft Cell, Abba, Fine Young Cannibals, Sade, The Style Council and The Specials.

First launched in October 2012, Classic Pop is a monthly British music magazine, that celebrates the most influential pop music from the 70s, 80s and 90s.


In each issue, Classic Pop dedicates a minimum of five pages to the creation, influence and history of one of the most significant albums from the pop genre. From Duran Duran’s ‘Rio’ to ‘Fantastic’ by Wham! or Primal Scream’s outstanding ‘Screamadelica’, Classic Pop magazine covers all of your favourite pop music classics.


As well as it’s regular monthly editions, Classic Pop has released a number of special one-off issues that celebrate the most influential, classic pop icons such as Michael Jackson, ABBA, Elton John, Prince, Madonna, David Bowie and Paul McCartney.

A Classic Pop digital magazine subscription is a must-have for anyone interested in the 70s, 80s and 90s pop music. Each issue is packed with fantastic features - with your subscription you’ll receive:
