It's that time again to get you voting fingers clicking. The Scottish Album of the Year (SAY) Award‘s public vote opens now until midnight on Wednesday May 27. That's three days in which music fans over the world can choose their favourite album from The SAY Award long list.
The public’s choice will be guaranteed a coveted slot on shortlist, due to be revealed at a public reception in the CCA, Glasgow on the evening of Thursday 28 May.
The 20 long listed titles have been available to stream for the past four weeks via the SAY awards website. The album with the most votes at midnight on Wednesday will automatically make the list, earning a guaranteed £1,000 and the chance to be hailed Scottish Album of the Year 2015. You can check out the long list of acts below.
Stewart Henderson, chair of The Scottish Music Industry Association said: “The public vote is a crucial part of The SAY Award’s format because we’re asking the same of the public as we are of our judges: you’ve had four weeks to listen to these 20 albums – which one’s your favourite? "
