What you’ll find in The Ticket on your newstands, app and online tomorrow:

St Vincent: Annie Clarke on crazy obsessive thoughts, anxiety and “Strange Mercy”

The Kooks: why has it taken The Kooks three years to make a new bloody album? Lauren Murphy grabs her copy of Heat magazine and finds out.

Gary Oldman: on his role as George Smiley in Tinker Tailor, Soldier, Spy. Plus, more smiley culture: the other actors who’ve played George Smiley.

Bressie: Q&A with the former Leinster rugger-bugger and Blizzards’ frontman ahead of the release of his “Colourblind” album.

Plus reviews of new albums (including Laura Marling, The Kooks, Girls, Ed Sheeran, Balam Acab, David Guetta, Cant and Ry Cooder), movies (Friends With Benefits, Jane Eyre, Kes, Post Mortem, Troll Hunter, A Lonely Place to Die, Colombiana), games, apps, listings, news and much, much more.

That’s your winning Ticket in The Irish Times tomorrow in print, online and the best of The Ticket on the app.

The OTR plugs service is now open for business. Please feel free to plug and recommend stuff away to your heart’s content, but remember some simple rules: (a) declare an interest where one should be declared, (b) plugs are accepted on the whim of OTR and may be edited for length/clarity/common sense and (c) plugs which mention a commercial sponsor are really ads and will probably not be published in this slot. A sandwich walks into a bar.
