The Mercury Prize's 12 'Albums of the Year' will be announced on Thursday (25.07.19).
David Wilkinson, Mercury Prize Chairman, said ''There were over 200 albums entered for the 2019 Hyundai Mercury Prize - and the judges spend many months listening to these and then meet to decide on the shortlist of 12 'Albums of the Year'.
''This has been an exciting year for British and Irish music so it's going to be tough for them choosing just 12 albums.
''After last year's successful event we're looking forward to an equally diverse and eclectic shortlist being announced by Huw Stephens on 25 July.''
The overall winner will be announced on September 9 at a ceremony - which this year sees Amazon Music as the event's Digital Music Partner - at the Eventim Apollo, Hammersmith in London, featuring live performances from all 12 shortlisted acts.
