Winners will be selected at random from all successful applicants and announced on the website Tues 26th of Oct.

Following the huge success of their last album, The Liberty Of Norton Folgate, Madness returned to the studio re-energised and bursting with ideas for an album that will be with you some time in 2011.

Indisputably one of the UK’s biggest ever bands, undoubtedly one of its most loved, statistically one of its most successful and critically one of its most lauded, Madness are both the pop genii behind the likes of Our House, House Of Fun, One Step Beyond and many, many more.

With 2009’s The Liberty Of Norton Folgate, Madness saw themselves restored to their rightful place as at the top of the UK pop hierarchy and welcome a new generation to the massed ranks of Nutty boys and girls.
