The annual music prize ceremony is set to take place at the Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith in September 2022.
Sponsored by FREE NOW, a mobility services producer, the event awards the best British album to a British or Irish act out of a shortlist of 12 entries. It has awarded the likes of PJ Harvey, Dizzee Rascal, Skepta and Arctic Monkeys. Last year’s winner, Arlo Parks won against a stacked shortlist for her debut studio album, ‘Collapsed in Sunbeams’.
Perhaps we can anticipate Kojey Radical’s ‘Reasons to Smile’, Black Country, New Road’s ‘Ants from Up Here’, or Charli XCX’s ‘CRASH’ earning a nomination. Let us know your predications for the Mercury Award shortlist in the comments below.
