The people have spoken: Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds double album Ghosteen has been voted Beat’s People’s Choice Album of the Year.
Cave’s 17th studio album was announced on his blog, The Red Hand Files, in September and was released a short time later. It just goes to show Beat readers have good taste, with Ghosteen racking up a bunch of other accolades including Pitchfork’s Best New Music.
Honourable mentions for the award go to Billie Eilish with WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP WHERE DO WE GO? and our very own King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard for Infest The Rats’ Nest.
