THE DEATH OF PRINT JOURNALISM, TRANSATLANTIC EDITION

For the cover of our U.K. special print issue, we offer a tweak of The Sex Pistols’ iconic “God Save the Queen” artwork for the COVID era (limned by deranged genius Van Arno). It’s a timely graphic as we deliver our yearly survey of musical happenings in Blighty—and continue binge-watching The Crown.

Mike Caren’s nonexclusive mega-deal with WMG, which secures free-agent status for him and a windfall of big acts and catalog for the label group, marks the beginning of a new era for the biz trailblazer. Caren’s APG is now set to play a dominant role in the indie sector. He just wishes he could be independent of us.
