Mercury Prize - A Playlist

Created as an alternative to the Brit Awards, the Mercury Prize has proved a powerful force for British music since Primal Scream picked up the gong for Screamadelica at its inaugural ceremony in 1992.

The award has helped launch the careers of now established acts such as Franz Ferdinand, Dizzee Rascal, Primal Scream and Portishead. Whilst also giving that all-important extra support to the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Pulp and The XX.

This playlist covers all of 2013’s nominees, alongside choice cuts from an illustrious list of previous winners.
