Alternative rock band Wolf Alice have won the Hyundai Mercury Prize for their album Visions of a Life.
Mumford & Sons are back. Three years after their third album Wilder Minds topped the UK charts, the banjo-wielding group have released the first track from their upcoming fourth record, titled Delta. The new single “Guiding Light” – a slow building folksy track that’s apparently “emblematic” of the new album – has been made available online and will be followed by the album on 16 November.
Lily Allen, Jorja Smith and Florence Welch led the glamour as nominated acts turned out on the carpet for one of the most prestigious ceremonies in the music calendar. The event will see live performances from some of the 12 shortlisted acts, including Florence and The Machine, Jorja Smith and Nadine Shah. Also in the running for the award are Everything Everything, Everything Is Recorded, King Krule, Novelist, Sons of Kemet and Wolf Alice.
