So many incredible artists were up for the Mercury Music Prize this year. Of course I would love to see one of my favorite bands win the prize, Everything Everything (and I know they will definitely make another album that will be nominated), but I have to say I was so excited and happy for PJ Harvey to win the prize for the second time (after 10 years). Her album “Let England Shake” is a prime example of why such a prestigious prize for English artists should exist. Listen to this incredible interview of PJ Harvey talking about the making of the album and check out the video of her performance at the awards:
