The inaugural Association of Independent Music Awards will take place in London on Nov. 10. The awards, the goal of which is to "recognize and celebrate the artists, labels, companies, and individuals at the heart of this thriving music sector in the UK," will be hosted by British radio personalities Steve Lamacq and Huw Stephens. At the ceremony, Bjork will be presented with the "Outstanding Contribution to Music" award, which is chosen by the AIM committee of tastemakers and critics to be given to an artist who "continues to influence and inspire with their work." Bjork was chosen specifically for "embracing and exploring new technology, supporting and mentoring new talent and a dedication to realising artistic visions without compromise or concession."

Bjork's upcoming LP Biophilia will be released Sept. 27 via One Little Indian.
