Blur's Damon Albarn is on the Mercury Prize shortlist

The solo debut from Blur's Damon Albarn and chart-topping duo Royal Blood head the shortlist as favourites for this year's Barclaycard Mercury Prize.

The acts are among 12 in the running for the high-profile award which this year has largely shunned mainstream names to instead include acts such as FKA twigs, GoGo Penguin and acclaimed poet Kate Tempest.
