The 'As It Was' hitmaker, 28, will compete with the likes of Sam Fender's 'Seventeen Going Under' and Little Simz' 'Sometimes I Might Be Introvert' to be crowned the overall winner of the prize on September 8 in London's Eventim Apollo, Hammersmith.
Axar.az reports that Self Esteem, Joy Crookes, Fergus McCreadie, Gwenno, Jessie Buckley and Bernard Butler, Kojey Radical, Nova Twins, Wet Leg, and Yard Act also made the shortlist.
The judging panel which includes musicians Anna Calvi, Jamie Cullum, and Loyle Carner, and is chaired by Head of Music, 6 Music, and Radio 2 Jeff Smith - commented: "Getting down to 12 albums this year was not easy, simply because there were so many remarkable ones to choose from. That serves as proof that British and Irish music thrives during unsettled periods in history, with the albums chosen covering everything from imaginative pop to pioneering rap to Cornish language folk-rock. We feel that these 12 amazing albums each have something to say artistically and socially, all in their own unique, enriching ways. Now comes the really hard part... choosing only one overall winner."
