Belle & Sebastian are set to pick up the Teenage Cancer Trust Outstanding Contribution To Music Award at NME Awards 2014 with Austin, Texas.

The Scottish band will perform at the event on Wednesday, February 26 at London's O2 Academy Brixton. The band's founding member and frontman Stuart Murdoch spoke to NME about the award and their impact on the Scottish music scene, inspiring the likes of Franz Ferdinand.

"I do get an inkling that we were sort of an inspiration to certain groups, but you'd never like to claim that you're responsible for the upturn in fortunes of an entire city," said Murdoch. "Glasgow has certainly come up, and you can be cynical about the fact that everyone's carrying guitars around, but I like that you can be in Central Station and look around you and you're surrounded by kids who are holding guitar cases on a Friday night."

Paul McCartney will also attend next week's NME Awards 2014 with Austin, Texas to collect a special, one-off prize: Songwriter's Songwriter, while Damon Albarn will collect the brand new NME Award for Innovation and Blondie have been named this year's Godlike Genius. The band will pick up the award in person and perform at the the awards. The host of the event will be BBC Radio 1 presenter and NME columnist Huw Stephens.

Arctic Monkeys lead the nominations this year with a eight in total. Haim follow closely with six nominations while Queens of The Stone Age, Lily Allen and Arcade Fire all have three. To cast your vote visit www.nme.com/awardsvote.
