James Blake Wins Mercury Music Prize

It’s just been announced – James Blake has won the 2013 Mercury Music prize for his second album Overgrown.

Despite being an outsider behind David Bowie, Disclosure and bookies’ favourite Laura Mvula (and occasionally being mistaken for James Blunt), James Blake has snatched the coveted music award for his self-produced album featuring the likes of┬áBrian Eno and Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA.

“I feel totally different to how I thought I would. I feel totally emotional and overcome.” stated Blake after receiving his prize.
