Welsh Albums - Our Best of 2022

Welsh Albums – Our Best of 2022

It’s that time of year again! With Christmas nearing and 2022 drawing to a close, we take a look back at some of the best art and cultural offerings to come out of Wales this year. We’re kicking off the season with a celebration of our favourite Welsh albums from 2022.

2022 saw the return of live music in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, but there were still plenty of brilliant albums to enjoy from Welsh artists throughout the year. With some help from the Wales Arts Review contributors and editorial team, we have selected our favourite Welsh albums of 2022.

Our album of the year will be announced later in December.
