PJ Harvey Wins the Mercury Prize

 

PJ Harvey's Let England Shake took home the prestigious Barclaycard Mercury Prize today.

The Mercury Prize, which has handed out an award for the best British album of the year since 1992, is selected by a panel of music industry representatives. The panel has a reputation for selecting winners out of left-field, but PJ Harvey was no dark horse, having previously won in 2001 for Stories From the City, Stories From the Sea. This year, she beat out a groupthat included artists ranging from Adele to James Blake to Katy B to Elbow and Metronomy and more.
