The likes of Stormzy, Laura Marling, Sports Team and Michael Kiwanuka have been shortlisted for the coveted Mercury Prize.
While it’s unlikely the ceremony – which has taken place at The Hammersmith Eventim Apollo in recent years – will take place in September due to government restrictions, the overall winner will be announced on 24 September 2020.
Among the nods for the prestigious award – which celebrates the best of British and Irish albums – are the likes of Laura Marling with her Song for Our Daughter album, Michael Kiwanuka for his critically acclaimed KIWANUKA, Georgia with Seeking Thrills, Sports Team with Deep Down Happy and last year’s Glasto headliner Stormzy with Heavy Is the Head.
