SAY Awards announces final shortlist

28 May 2015, 21:30 | Written by Laurence Day

The Scottish Album Of The Year Awards have unveiled their final shortlist ahead of next month's crowning ceremony.

Paolo Nutini made the cut first after winning the public vote. Each of the shortlisted nominees will receive £1000, as well as a "one of a kind quilt from Glasgow School of Art graduate Vanessa Hindshaw".

The winner will be announced 17 June at O2 ABC Glasgow.

Stewart Henderson, the chair of the Scottish Music Industry Association (SMIA), said: “Reducing The SAY Award longlist to a shortlist of 10 is never an easy task but by all accounts this year’s process has been particularly painful. We can only wish the remaining titles the very best of luck and congratulate them on emerging from such an extraordinary crop of albums.”
