It's a diverse pick...

The longlist for the Scottish Album Of The Year Award 2020 has been announced.

The list was compiled from a free-to-enter scheme, which attracted a record number of entries.

Whittled down from this hefty pack, the longlist was unveiled during an online broadcast a few moments ago.

It's a pleasingly diverse list, too, one that recognises big-hitters such as Lewis Capaldi and rather more underground fare, such as Cloth.

Erland Cooper's wonderful 'Sule Skerry' makes the cut, as do fellow Clash faves Free Love.

The shortlist will be announced on October 8th, before the winner is unveiled on October 29th.
