Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers’ Named BBC Radio 6 Music’s Album Of The Year

Kendrick Lamar‘s Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers has been named BBC Radio 6 Music‘s Album Of The Year.

Mary Anne Hobbs, one of the many presenters who voted for Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, said, “I think it’s fair to say, it’s rare that one artist can unite the whole of the 6 Music family, with our vast diversity of tastes and preferences. But Kendrick is peerless, and with ‘Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers,’ he’s done it.”

The British digital radio station announces its Top 10 Albums of the Year each November. The albums are voted on by the station’s presenters.

Lamar has been nominated for eight Grammy Awards this year, including Album of the Year for Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers.

On Tuesday, BBC Sounds started broadcasting live five special episodes of New Album Fix – 6 Music’s weekly guide to the best new releases – called New Album Fix: Albums of the Year 2022.

Upcoming episodes are set to broadcast on December 2, 9, 16, 22 and 29. Each episode will see Matt Everitt explore two of the Top 10 albums in depth, and hear from some of the artists who made them.
