David Bowie Covers Redesigned NME

David Bowie will grace the cover of the new and improved NME magazine this month. In the October edition of NME, which will feature changes such as a newly designed cover, heavyweight paper, and a more compact size, Bowie discusses his upcoming album, The Next Day Extra.

As far as the magazine's new look and feel, editor Mike Williams said on the magazine's website that "you could call the changes to NME a redesign, but we prefer to think of it as a reinvention."

"And in the spirit of reinvention," Williams continued, "only one artist could grace this week's cover: David Bowie. David Bowie is the cosmic umbilical cord that connects the past, present and future of music. The new NME aims to be the definitive guide to all the above."

Some additional changes readers will find include an expanded Radar section with even more new band recommendations per week, along with tips on new music from columnists such as producer Dave Sitek and DJ Huw Stephens. The On Repeat section has doubled in size with twice the number of new track recommendations as well.

The new NME with David Bowie hits newsstands in the U.K. on Wednesday.
