Win a bundle of the year's best music books and a £100 Record Token!

Calling all music fans!

This year has been a bumper one for music writing, with highly anticipated memoirs from Sinéad O'Connor and Dave Grohl, a compilation of authors talking about the albums that shaped their lives, and a book that brings together all the highlights from Tim Burgess' 2020 lockdown Twitter Listening Party for you to enjoy again and again.

We're giving away a bundle of ten of the best music books and memoirs from the last 12 months, PLUS a £100 Record Token so you can treat yourself to some shiny new vinyl from your favourite record shop.

The bundle of books comprises:

  • Long Players: Writers on the Albums That Shaped Them by Tom Gatti
  • The Storyteller: Tales of Life and Music by Dave Grohl
  • The Listening Party: Artists, Bands and Fans Reflect on 100 Favourite Albums by Tim Burgess
  • Rememberings by Sinéad O’Connor
  • Supersonic: The Complete, Authorised and Uncut Interviews by Oasis
  • Tenement Kid by Bobby Gillespie
