45-06: Denise Chaila with President Michael D. Higgins / Picture This (dual-cover special)

In this dual-cover edition of Hot Press, we're bringing you two special covers – one featuring the President of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins, and Limerick artist Denise Chaila; and the other featuring rising Irish international stars Picture This.

Denise Chaila has established herself not only as a groundbreaking and award-winning artist, but also a profoundly influential voice in modern Irish society – using her platform to address some of the most crucial issues facing black Irish people today. She sits down with President Michael D. Higgins in Áras an Uachtaráin following the recent publication of his widely acclaimed book, Reclaiming the European Street: Speeches on Europe and the European Union, 2016-20, for what is a truly remarkable conversation about life, politics and the power of words.

This is a historic and wonderfully memorable occasion, which will go down in the annals of Irish popular culture...

Meanwhile, following the success of 2019's MDRN LV – which they celebrated with an astonishing, unprecedented five-night run at the 3Arena, Dublin – Picture This are back with Life In Colour (out June 25).

Determined to let their fans know that better times lie ahead, Picture This are releasing an album of edgy pop bangers, packed with hit songs that aren't afraid to cause offence. Famous friends, greedy TDs, drugs, Harry Styles, Hollywood and winding people up are all on the agenda as Hot Press deputy editor Stuart Clark gets to actually, physically meet the band...

Elsewhere in the issue, you can look forward to interviews with Wolf Alice, Lucy Dacus, Kojaque, Saint Sister, The Black Keys, Bobby Gillespie and more. Plus – all the latest news, previews, and reviews...
