The shortlist of albums up for the Mercury Prize 2016 has been revealed, and it is a veritable mix of artists and musical genres.
Getting much of the attention is Radiohead, as the rock band has become the most-nominated act in the award's history.

The Thom Yorke-fronted band has received its fifth ever nomination for latest album A Moon Shaped Pool.
They were first nominated in 1997 for OK Computer, and then for Amnesiac in 2001, Hail To The Thief in 2003 and In Rainbows in 2008, but they have yet to win the prestigious prize.
Also stealing headlines following the announcement is David Bowie, who has received a posthumous nomination for his album Blackstar, eight months after his death.
It is the British music icon's third Mercury nomination: he was first up for the prestigious prize in 2002 with his album Heathen, and then again in 2013 for The Next Day. He has not yet won the title.
Singer-songwriter Laura Mvula is up for the prize with her second album The Dreaming Room - she was previously nominated in 2013 for her debut effort Sing To The Moon.
Two grime artists, Skepta and Kano, have also become talking points for their nods.
The winner of the award will receive a £25,000 prize, with the ceremony taking place on September 15.
