Q: Jack White - May 2018
In this issue of Q, we join Jack White at home in Nashville as he prepares to release his third solo album. We hear how with each new record, White has to find a new way to make things difficult for himself. “I’m too strange for mainstream, I’m too mainstream for underground,” the former White Stripe frontman tells Dorian Lynskey.
Also in the issue, Andrew Perry hears how The Vaccines are rejuvenated and fighting fit, Stefflon Don tells Peter Robinson how she “always knew I was going to be everywhere” and MGMT talk us through the journey that has led to their most commercial album since their breakthrough debut. Niall Doherty heads to LA to go for tacos and tequila with Eels frontman E, Tom Doyle meets Simple Minds on home turf as the Glaswegians’ bandwagon gathers speed once more and Rebecca Nicholson joins emerging hip-hop star Reggie Snow in New York.
This month’s Q Maverick is Lawrence, one of the greatest songwriters Britain’s underground has produced. The subject of this month’s Cash For Questions is John Lydon, while Gwenno tells us about the albums that changed her life. In the Q Review, we appraise new albums from Manic Street Preachers, Yo La Tengo, Goat Girl and more.
