This is a Flip Cover Special Magazine which will have The Script (Front Cover) & Jack Lukeman (Back Cover)
As Irish Music Month kicks off, we're thrilled to present a new special edition of Hot Press. Featuring flip-cover stars The Script and Jack Lukeman, the new issue is a vibrant celebration of Irish music, coinciding with the launch of Hot Press and the Independent Broadcasters of Ireland's major initiative to promote homegrown artists and bands.
In one of his most intimate and revealing interviews yet, Danny O’Donoghue talks personal epiphanies, love during lockdown, family, magic moments and, as they release their greatest hits album, The Script’s place in the pop scheme of things with Stuart Clark.

On the flip-cover, we talk to Jack Lukeman –whose digital fireside chats are going global with a new livestream show. Plus, he’s announced his first ever headline gig for 3Arena in November 2022...
Elsewhere in the issue, we speak to Christy Dignam, Hermitage Green, HousePlants, Maria Kelly, Sharon Corr, The Altered Hours, The Specials and more.
Plus, as part of our Mental Health Special, we present a selection of Irish artists and writers who have shared their thoughts and experiences with Hot Press – and we speak to Kodaline's Steve Garrigan about his struggles with anxiety and depression, which he addresses in his new book, High Hopes.
You can expect all of that – plus a lot more! – in this new special issue of Hot Press, in shops now and available to order online.
