Beady Eye Speak Out!
Always outspoken, Liam Gallagher and his Beady Eye shocktroops are back. New album 'BE' is a defiant step forward, with renowned American producer (and TV On The Radio lynchpin) Dave Sitek manning the controls.
In a candid interview, each member takes it in turn to open up to Clash. As ever, the final word is left to Liam Gallagher: "Without sounding like a hippy cunt... it's just love, man. I've got a lot of love".
Elimination Blues: Primal Scream
Returning with their first blast of new material in five years, Primal Scream could be forgiven for taking it easy - yet new album 'More Light' is one of their angriest, most diverse offerings to date.
As Bobby Gillespie explains, "we just had a strong desire to make music".
Beginning Of Forever: John Legend
Hip hop's soul man, John Legend has returned to remind people that very very rarely, they still do make 'em like that.
"It's time to release something new..."
Right Noise: The Rise And Rise Of Disclosure

Ready For Battle: These New Puritans
"It's from the heart. The songs and the subjects are more human..."
The country's most ambitious group? These New Puritans are back, and they're in no mood to slow their frenetic creativity.
