Tune In: Jenny Lewis' The Voyager Album Comes Out Tomorrow!
While we've been waiting for what seems like forever to hear indie queen Jenny Lewis' latest record, we have been really enjoying passing the time by re-watching the video for her single “Just One Of The Guys." After tomorrow, though, the wait will finally be over seeing as the The Voyager finally drops. It’s Lewis' first solo album in six years, so you can pretty much expect us to be playing it over and over again for the rest of the summer (at least). If you haven’t already, pre-order The Voyager here or go scoop it up IRL at your favorite local record store. Until then, get a sneak peek into our interview with the musician right here, before our August issue hits newsstands on Wednesday!
Read On: Our Denim Issue Hits Newsstands July 30
Speaking of our August Issue, it's hard to believe it's been a whole year since the last denim-obsessed NYLON came out, which is exactly why we can't wait for this Wednesday, when the 2014 issue hits newsstands! What can you expect to find inside? We won't ruin all the surprises, but you'll definitely find an interview with Jenny Lewis (obvi), the inside scoop on Australian actress Adelaide Clemens, and Nina Dobrev showing off her good genes (and jeans)! Be sure to tag your photos of our latest issue with @nylonmag so we can see where you read NYLON!
Go See: Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, Starring Zoe Saldana!
Whether or not you're a major Marvel fan, trust us when we say you won't want to miss NYLON's April 2010 cover star, Zoe Saldana, in the comic book brand's latest flick. Guardians of the Galaxy hits theaters this Thursday, and comes with all the sci-fi action you'd expect from a movie based on Marvel's own superheroes. Don't skip out on getting the chance to see Saldana as the badass assassin Gamora, covered head-to-toe in gremlin green. Check out the trailer here and get pumped to see Saldana help save the galaxy!
Eat It Up: Today is National Milk Chocolate Day
If you've been looking for an excuse to eat tons of chocolate lately, we've found it. That's because it's officially National Milk Chocolate Day! Seriously, whoever came up with that idea deserves a raise. Not sure about you, but we'll be eating milk chocolate for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. After that? Throw it back to 2009, when NYLON TV caught Style Director Dani Stahl behind-the-scenes at the Hershey's Chocolate Factory--so sweet.
