SAY Award 2022 Longlist Announced

The Scottish Album of the Year (SAY) Award has announced the twenty belting albums that have made it the 2022 Longlist, each now in the running for the SAY Award title and £20,000 first prize. The winner will be announced at The SAY Award 2022 Ceremony at Stirling’s Albert Halls on Thursday 20th October. Selected from a staggering 369 records, this year’s longlist showcases one of the most diverse genre spreads in the eleven years of the award; exhibiting Scotland’s eclectic musical landscape and the range of subcultures and artistic styles that dwell within it.
