Django Django to battle Calvin Harris and Emeli Sandé for 2013 Scottish Album of the Year Award
The nominees for the 2013 Scottish Album of the Year Award have been announced with Django Django going up against Calvin Harris and Emeli Sandé on the list of nominated albums.

Django Django's self-titled debut album is one of 17 albums on the SAY longlist (despite only two members being Scottish) with releases by Errors, Meursault, Dam Mantle and PAWS also featuring alongside chart topping albums by Calvin Harris and Emeli Sandé. The longlist will be shortened to 10 albums following a 24-hour public vote on May 27. The album with the most public votes will secure an automatic place on The SAY Award Shortlist of 10, with the other nine titles being chosen by an independent panel of judges.

Speaking about the award, Stewart Henderson, Chair of the Scottish Music Industry Association says: "In celebrating the album, The SAY Award recognises a format that continues to affect, inspire and excite us like no other. We should all feel justifiably proud of Scotland’s capacity to produce extraordinary albums and, with The SAY Award, we can bring exceptional albums to the public’s attention, value the importance of music and, best of all, bask in the warm glow of our own magnificence for six weeks: never a bad thing."

An overall winner of the SAY Award will be announced on June 20 at Barrowlands Ballroom in Glasgow.
