Mercury Prize nominees announced

Nominations for this year's Mercury Prize have just been announced, July 19, and Grammy award-winner Adele is in the running for the most coveted title. 

The 'Someone Like You' hitmaker has been tipped to win the Mercury Prize and will fight against competition from Tinie Tempah, Elbow, PJ Harvey and Katy B, who have also made it into the album of the year shortlist. 

There are some newcomers who feature on this year's list, including James Blake and Anna Calvi, and obviously a stronger urban presence than previous years with the inclusion of Tinie's 'Disc-Overy' and Katy B's 'On A Mission'. 

The winner will be revealed on September 6 and you can watch Adele's recent performance of 'Rolling In The Deep' from the iTunes Festival below:
