As the first ever Rolling Stone UK Awards in collaboration with Rémy Martin draws nearer, we’re delighted to announce the nominees for the Album Award, supported by Brooklands Studio.

This category recognises eight acts that have defined 2023 with brilliant and hugely diverse records that show that British music is in ruder health than ever. There’s returning Britpop icons, independent artists releasing a stunning debut after prolonged label struggles and one of electronic music’s true greats still proving their worth after over 30 years in the game. All our nominees have made their mark on this year.

Without further ado, we present the nominees for The Album Award.

Blur – The Ballad of Darren

Raye – My 21st Century Blues

J Hus – Beautiful and Brutal Yard

Young Fathers – Heavy Heavy

Jorja Smith – Falling or Flying

Romy – Mid Air

Niall Horan – The Show

The Chemical Brothers – For That Beautiful Feeling

The latest nomination announcement comes after we previously confirmed the artists shortlisted for Song Of The Year, as well as the Breakthrough Award.

Ozzy Osbourne will also be heading to the Roundhouse on November 23 to pick up he Icon Award.

The Rolling Stone UK Awards will be hosted by Munya Chawawa.
