Lisa Hannigan shortlisted for Mercury Music Prize

The beguiling, charming Lisa Hannigan has been nominated for a Mercury Music Prize, the UK's top annual award.. The singer is nominated for her superb Sea Sew album, one of our favourite album's of last year.

Hannigan is nominated alongside:

Florence and the Machine


Speech Debelle

Friendly Fires

La Roux

Bat For Lashes

The Horrors


Led Bib

Sweet Billy Pilgrom

The Invisible

We only just talked to Miss Hannigan last Friday - see interview in today's Chronicle. Early odds on favourite is English media darling Florence and the Machine, who will take some beating. Lisa is at 18/1 (I'll have some of that thanks!) and Friendly Fires are at 8/1 (tip!).

The winner will be announced on September 4. Lisa Hannigan plays in Daghdha's Church on August 6...
