The short list for the Mercury Prize was revealed last week with some welcome names on there. It was safe bet that Michael Kiwanuka was always going to appear on the list after his rocket to music stardom in the past 12 months, and it’s especially nice to see Lianne La Havas getting the nod. Here’s the list, take some time to absorb and comment while enjoying a listen below.
We’ll start with the first six.
Part Two tomorrow.
