Following PJ Harvey’s win last year for Let England Shake, we have a new collection of British albums in the running for the annual Mercury Prize announced last night at The Hospital Club in Covent Garden..

They are as follows: The Maccabees’ Given To The Wild, Jessie Ware’s Devotion, Django Django – self-titled, Roller Trio – self-titled, Field Music’s Plumb, Richard Hawley’s Standing At The Sky’s Edge, Michael Kiwanuka’s Home Again, Sam Lee’s Ground Of Its Own, Ben Howard’s Every Kingdown, Lianne La Havas’ Is Your Love Big Enough?, Alt-J’s An Awesome Wave, and Plan B’s Ill Manors.

The Guardian has set some arbitrary odds for the prize, tipping Plan B and Richard Hawley as most likely to win. The announcement and awards show will take place at the Roundhouse in Camden on Thursday 1 November.

Check out some of the sounds below, as well as our interviews with nominees Michael Kiwanuka and Ben Howard.
