Digital Edition - Read the new issue of NME now

Jack White, Florence And The Machine, Kasabian and MIA are among 10 different cover stars who feature in a special edition of NME this week (April 7).



The issue will feature 10 different covers – all with exclusive interviews – starring LCD Soundsystem, Biffy Clyro and Laura Marling.



Each of the artists who feature on the covers give their assessment on where music is at right now and their vision for the future.



"Getting the 10 covers together has been an exciting challenge for the NME team. We’ve brought together a really varied group of musicians from global icons like Jack White and Rihanna, innovators like MIA and LCD Soundsystem to exciting newcomers in the form of dubstep supergroup Magnetic Man," explained NME editor Krissi Murison of the special edition's cover stars.



She added: "They might all look and sound different, but what each of these 10 cover stars have in common is that they are all at the forefront of 2010's breakthrough sounds."



The special covers have been put together to mark the launch of the new NME. The magazine has been completely revamped with a new front and review sections, new features plus an update for NME's iconic logo.



"This week’s special edition also marks the start of a new phase for NME," explained Murison.



"From our new masthead, through to the revamped news, Radar and reviews sections, this issue marks the beginning of a new era for the magazine. I can’t wait to see what music fans make of the new NME.”



Here is the list of artists who feature on the ten covers:

1. Jack White
2. Florence And The Machine
3. LCD Soundsystem
4, Rihanna
5. Kasabian
6. Laura Marling
7. Foals
