Winner will be revealed on 10/09/2020 (date subject to change)


Here's what I think might make it to the shortlist

FKA twigs (hoping for this to happen)
At least one UK rap entry (Stormzy, J Hus)
Electronic music (Floating Points, Squarepusher)
The Mercury Prize mainly focuses on albums by relative newcomers, so I'm guessing The Murder Capital, Sports Team, Georgia, Sam Fender, Pottery and Porridge Radio
At least one commercial success (Harry Styles, Dua Lipa, Dermot Kennedy)
A jazz album (Moses Boyd)
Jehnny Beth (both of Savages' albums got nominated, so this solo effort might receive one)
The 1975
Nadine Shah
Tom Misch & Yussef Dayes
Jessie Ware




Personal wishlist: Foals, Bat For Lashes, Michael Kiwanuka, King Krule, Temples (their most recent album isn't as good as Volcano, but it would be nice to see them make it), Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs

Yes please @ Floating Points and Squarepusher (maybe Four Tet could be in contention too?)

I reckon the win is FKA twigs' to lose.

I'd love Sports Team to be nominated just for the mental performance they'd give (and they absolutely deserve it)

FKA Twigs is the most critically acclaimed UK album from last year I guess
maybe they could also include Laura Marling, she was nominated quite a few times I think and the new album is a return to form

Fontaines just missing out by a couple of weeks then! Haven't heard it yet of course, but I'd love them to win it next year.

Michael Kiwanuka will almost certainly get a nomination. FKA Twigs and Tom Misch/Yussef Dayes are great shouts too.

I'd be reasonably happy with Harry getting a nod.

I really want the winner to either be FKA Twigs or Jessie Ware though, they had better both be on the shortlist!

I'm actually surprised at how little snobbery I've seen to Harry Styles' solo music, I'm sure there is some out there if you look for it but 'Fine Line' has been pretty critically acclaimed hasn't it? Kind of feels to me that he's largely escaped the stigma of being a former boyband member.

Yeah I've been pleasantly surprised by it as well, though I remember them being quite snobby when he performed on Jools Holland last year.

(and I'm pretty sure there would be a lot of unjust negativity if he does get the nomination here, I hope I'm wrong if it happens though)

I think Harry's managed the transition really well, I like quite a lot of his tracks and it feels very much like we're seeing the type of music he always wanted to make. Reminds me of how well Will Young divorced himself from Pop Idol by following his own musical tastes.
