The Scottish Album of the Year award shortlist nominations will be announced tomorrow at a glamorous bash in Glasgow's CCA, after all public votes have been counted.

Twenty of the country's best musicians are currently in the running for the gong including Mogwai, Biffy Clyro, The Pastels and Steve Mason.

A shortlist of ten acts will be finalised tomorrow, and the entry with the highest number of public votes will secure a place in the final line-up.

The Barrowlands Ballroom will play host to the star-studded awards ceremony on June 19.

Veteran DJ Vic Galloway, who will be hosting this year's awards said: "In its third year, this is possibly the strongest list the award has seen yet, and proves the diversity and quality across a range of rock, indie, pop, hip-hop, electronica, jazz and classical music.

"All 20 deserve attention and investigation, representing the artistic 'cream of the crop' from this extremely talented land."
