WHETHER IT’S 21-year-old new­comer Jorja Smith or 51-year-old veteran Noel Gal­lagher, the Lewisham grime stylings of MC Nov­el­ist or the shapeshift­ing in­die-pop an­thems of Wolf Alice, the short­listed artists for the 2018 Hyundai Mer­cury Prize all have one im­pres­sive thing in com­mon: a love and a rev­er­ence for the majesty of The Al­bum. From Sons Of Kemet and Florence + The Ma­chine, to Na­dine Shah and Lily Allen, and from Richard Rus­sell’s Ev­ery­thing Is Recorded project to the Man­cu­nian art-pop of Ev­ery­thing Ev­ery­thing, all of this year’s shortlist have fully em­braced the glo­ri­ous, free­ing po­ten­tial of the long-play­ing lis­ten – the care­fully spun nar­ra­tives, the emo­tional jour­neys and musical ad­ven­tures that you just don’t get any­where else in mu­sic. So whether you’re root­ing for pre­vi­ously short­listed artists such as the Arc­tic Mon­keys or bright young tear­aways like King Krule, here is your chance to par­tic­i­pate in the 2018 Hyundai Mer­cury Prize Awards Show on Septem­ber 20 at the Even­tim Apollo, Ham­mer­smith, an evening de­voted to the cel­e­bra­tion of the artistry and in­no­va­tion of mu­sic’s finest for­mat of ex­pres­sion, the long-play­ing al­bum.

Lis­ten to Pete Don­ald­son on Ab­so­lute Ra­dio every Mon­day in as­so­ci­a­tion with Q to catch The Road To The Hyundai Mer­cury Prize, high­light­ing the short­listed artists from this year and past years.
