Leslie Feist has been awarded the 2012 Polaris Music Prize for her latest LP, Metals.
The award, granted to the best album produced by a Canadian artist within the last 12 months, comes with a $30,000 prize (not to mention a free week’s rent on a VIP Deluxe Splitter tour bus, apparently). Grimes’ Visions, Drake’s Take Care and Cadence Weapon’s Hope In Dirt City were among the albums to lose out on the night.
The award was chosen by jury from a shortlist of ten, and was awarded last night at Bell Media’s Masonic Temple in Toronto. By way of celebration, why not detonate a party popper and listen to Trust’s doomy remix of Metals cut ‘Graveyard’, available below?
