Fyrnask art nominated for best album cover of 2013

The artwork for Fyrnask's "Eldir Nótt" has been nominated for the Best Art Vinyl 2013 prize in the United Kingdom. Announced via news outlets such as the BBC, METRO, and Design Week.

From the Design Week article:

 "Having released some of 2013’s biggest-selling records, Paul McCartney, Elton John and Daft Punk are now among artists in the running for the Best Art Vinyl 2013 prize.
Now in its ninth year, Art Vinyl puts record sleeve designs to a public vote in an effort to find the year’s best cover.
A 50-strong shortlist has been drawn up, with big-name pop stars alongside lesser-known groups such as FYRNASK,  Ras G and Pissed Jeans. Designers on the shortlist include Big Active, Leif Podhajsky and YES.
Art Vinyl founder Andrew Heeps suggests that the award is ‘possibly the most credible end-of-year award, where the artistic merits of the completely unknown can sit alongside big names in music – albeit in celebration of their visual identity’."

The complete roster of selected albums, which includes an album cover by renown UK artist, Damien Hirst, can be seen on the Metro website, and on the Design Week website. The Vierling Fyrnask cover is #22 in the list.

Voting on the best album cover is open to the general public, and can be done directly at the Art Vinyl website.
