NME is to return to print for the first time in five years, relaunching with a new global magazine this summer.

It comes after the company announced that the print edition of the magazine would cease publication in March 2018 – after 66 years of being printed weekly.

NME went on to become an online only platform in the process.

The publication will now return with a new bi-monthly magazine, that will be released globally with a July/August edition.

Having first launched in 1952, the magazine became renowned for showcasing new music artists, alongside reviews of the latest music, TV, film, and gaming releases.

Editors say that the return of the flagship magazine will see a “dynamic new design and content refresh”.

Each new issue will be fronted by an edition of The Cover – NME’s existing flagship editorial property that champions emerging talent.

NME Networks’ chief operating and commercial officer Holly Bishop said: “Print has always been a cornerstone of the NME brand, and we are thrilled to announce the return of an icon.

“Our new global magazine will curate the very best of NME; championing emerging artists and bands and serving as the definitive voice in pop culture.”

The first issue will be available to order online at Dawsons from August 9.
