Feist, Jessie Reyez and Daniel Caesar are among the artists nominated on the initial long list for the 2023 The Polaris Music Prize. The annual award is one of Canada’s most prestigious musical prizes, awarded for the Best Album of the Year.

As is customary, a group of writers, programmers, and broadcasters determines the nominees; this year’s pool collected votes from 205 people, who considered 221 albums in all. The short list of ten finalists for the Polaris Prize will be announced on July 13, with winners announced in mid-September. Visit the official website for further information.

The winner receives a $50,000 prize with the honor. The Weeknd and Arcade Fire were on last year’s shortlist, but Pierre Kwenders eventually won the 2022 Polaris Music Prize for his album José Louis and the Paradox of Love.
