The Mercury Music Prize nominees will be revealed next week, with Jools Holland announcing the twelve albums to make the shortlist on Thursday (20 July) at 11am in a ‘central London location’. Long players eligible for the prize are those released between July 2005 and July 2006 by a UK based act. The winner will be announced at a ceremony on 5 September.

Jools Holland says: “It has been a really strong year for UK music. With so many great albums out there at the moment, I’m really looking forward to the announcement. It has the potential to be a classic Nationwide Mercury Prize list.”
