London Grammar will cap off a memorable year after being named iTunes Album Of The Year.
Just 12 months ago, London Grammar were almost total unknowns. Formed at university, the three piece - Hannah Reid, Dot Major and Dan Rothman - had barely played any shows, and only one track existed online.
Thankfully, that track was 'Hey Now'. To date, the song has received more than 1.2 million plays online, propelling the group to a major breakthrough.
Debut album 'If You Wait' was critically acclaimed, and is currently riding high in those End Of Year polls. Capping a memorable 2013, London Grammar have just been named the winners of iTunes Album Of The Year.
The band said in a statement: "This is an absolute honour for us, we can’t thank iTunes and our fans enough for their support and this recognition. It’s been an incredible year, and this marks its close on a fantastic high, so thank you so much."
