The Chemical Brothers have has won the Album Award, supported by Brooklands Studios, at the first ever Rolling Stone UK Awards in collaboration with Rémy Martin.

The duo, who released their latest album For That Beautiful Feeling earlier this year, beating off competition from the likes of Blur, J Hus, Raye, Young Fathers, Jorja Smith, Romy, and Niall Horan.

Collecting the award at London’s Roundhouse from presenter AJ Odudu the duo – Ed Simon and Tom Rowlands – said it was “still nice to be recognised for what we do” and that “people still listen.”

They ended their short acceptance speech admitting, “We’re not really used to this!”

Describing the progression of their career in a new Rolling Stone UK interview for the awards issue of the magazine, Rowlands said: “Hopefully, listening to the first one, you can understand how we ended up with the 10th one. We never think: ‘Ground zero: we’ve done this and disown The Chemical Brothers sound’ or what we like about music. But hopefully there’s a common thread of two souls creating something together that’s kind of consistent. And within that, there’s a lot of broad musical expressions. But there’s something at the heart of it that ties them all together.”

The first Rolling Stone UK Awards kicked off earlier tonight with a performance from The Last Dinner Party, who stunned attendees with a powerful rendition of ‘My Lady Of Mercy’.
