Feist has won the 2012 Polaris Music Prize with her recent studio album 'Metals'.
Perhaps the most important award in Canadian music, the Polaris Music Prize recognises new, breaking artists. Rising in tandem with the country's ever blossoming music scene, the award now earns international attention. The final ceremony took place last night (September 24th) and saw Feist walk away with the gong.
The Polaris Music Prize was awarded to 'Metals' fighting off competition from Japandroids, Fucked Up and more. This is the first time Feist has won the Polaris, although she was nominated for 2007's full length 'The Reminder'.
