This year's Mercury Prize shortlist has been announced. The 2020 edition will be, like everything else, quite different. September will see the first ever digital edition of the ceremony.

Announced by Lauren Laverne on BBC Radio 6 Music this morning, the nominees for the 2020 Hyundai Mercury Prize are:

Laura Marling - Song For Our Daughter
Dua Lipa - Future Nostalgia
Porridge Radio - Every Bad
Sports Team - Deep Down Happy
Kano - Hoodies All Summer
Anna Meredith - Fibs
Georgia - Seeking Thrills
Lanterns on the Lake - Spook the Herd
Moses Boyd - Dark Matter
Charli XCX - How I'm Feeling Now
Stormzy - Heavy is the Head
Michael Kiwanuka - KIWANUKA

The choices were cherrypicked by a panel of judges, Anna Calvi and Gaz Coombes among them. Gigwise made our predictions this week, and we got four out of the twelve right. How many did you get?
