From unexpected superstars to returning heroes, here’s the year in its standout records.
At the start of the year, we were pretty sure Arlo Parks would ‘do quite well’, but what followed was positively interstellar.
Also Black Midi, Ghetts, SG Lewis and 'others'.
Our Arlo has had a very good year indeed.
The annual award for the best British album of the year was chosen from a shortlist of twelve records.
The star tested positive for Covid 19.
Catch Arlo on tour later this year.
The ceremony will take place on 11th May at London's O2 Arena.
She'll now play a second O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire show on 3rd November.
She's got three new dates.
