Yesterday we revealed the 10 special covers of the new-look NME. Today we’re giving you a sneak peak at some of the shoots you’ll see inside the mag. First up here’s Biffy Clyro, photographed backstage at Mr Small’s Theatre, Pittsburgh, by Pieter M Van Hattem.
Rihanna, photographed for the new NME by Tom Oxley. In addition to the “Shhh” tattoo you can see here, the R&B star also has “love” tatooed on her middle finger of he left hand.
Jack White, by Jo McCaughey. Jack invited us to his home town to shoot him for the cover – he’s pictured here in his shop at Third Man Records HQ. Drop in if you’re in Nashville to pick your Third Man novelties and records. You never know, the great man himself might be behind the counter.
MIA, photographed by Pamela Littky in Santa Monica, March 9, 2010.
Florence, photographed by Dean Chalkley in London, March 23, 2010.
Laura Marling drinking tea in her flat in Shepherd’s Bush, March 5, 2010. By Tom Oxley.
James Murphy pictured with his best buddy, Petunia the French Pug. She was hanging with him in his rehearsal studio in Brooklyn where we did this shoot. By Tom Oxley.
Kasabian, by Dean Chalkley. Picture Director Marian Paterson says: “I asked the boys to wear something colourful to the shoot, I was so happy when Serge pulled his sequined jacket out of his suitcase – he’s only man I know who can rock spangles and look cool (other than Hendrix, of course).”
One of the interview spreads from the new issue.
We’ve hidden five Golden Tickets inside copies of the new issue…
If you find one it means you’ve won a pair of tickets to a major UK festival.
