With Rae Sremmurd, Blondie, Ed Sheeran and Karen Elson!
Clash Issue 103

The new issue of Clash magazine is out now and ready to delight your brighter days, featuring four equally bright cover stars.

Global pop phenomenon Ed Sheeran leads the pack this issue, which is completed by fashion icon and gothic folk queen Karen Elson, party-starting rap duo Rae Sremmurd, and iconic new wave pioneers Bondie.

He’s made history countless times over, breaking records at every turn, but pop’s triumphant troubadour’s feet are still placed firmly on the ground. “I like being known as a songwriter,” Ed Sheeran told Clash in the week his new album, ‘÷’, headed for total worldwide chart domination. “I am a performer, but I want to be remembered as a songwriter… A song is something that exists forever.” We caught up with Suffolk’s golden boy to talk tenacity, Taylor Swift and finally taking a break.

Forsaking model behaviour for murder ballads, we welcome back English rose Karen Elson as she returns with her second album, ‘Double Roses’, and discover why it took so long to bloom.

Brothers Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi may have soundtracked the mannequin challenge, but their momentum is anything but standing still. We meet Tupelo’s dynamic duo, Rae Sremmurd, as they continue their rise to hip-hop superstardom.

As progressive and responsive as the city they call home, the enduringly iconic New York natives Bondie opened up to Clash about the hunger for revision and endless thirst for new sounds that continues to propel them only forward.

Also in this issue, we meet Ryan Adams, Big Sean, Sundara Karma, Julia Michaels, Raye, Ray Davies, James Blunt, Stevie Parker, Belly Squad, Tinie Tempah, Off Bloom, Brad Elterman and many more.

Issue 103 is in stores now — in the meantime you can purchase direct from our online store.
