The Hyundai Mercury Prize 2021 shortlist has been unveiled. As always, 12 albums have been shortlisted for the prestigious award, which aims to highlight the most exciting and innovative music released over the past year.

A mix of established acts and artists yet to hit the mainstream are up for this year's award, including debut albums for Brit Award winners Celeste (Not Your Muse) and Arlo Parks (Collapsed In Sunbeams).

As well as Celeste, two more albums on this year's shortlist have reached Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart: Mogwai's As The Love Continues, and Wolf Alice's Blue Weekend - the band's third nomination following their win in 2018 with Visions Of A Life.
