Mercury Prize – David Bowie Tipped for Posthumous Win

We’ve spoken before about how David Bowie is in the running for a posthumous win of the Mercury Prize. Now, Bowie is the clear frontrunner to win this year’s Prize, with one bookmaker making him a 4/7 favourite.

Bowie has been posthumously nominated for his final album Blackstar, and if the album wins Bowie will be the first person to posthumously win the £25,000 prize. However, Blackstar does face some stiff competition.

William Hill have put Anohni – Hopelessness as their second favourite at 7/1. But, I think we can all agree that while there are some strong contenders (especially Moon Shaped Pool), Blackstar is probably the favourite here for most people.

The other nominees are:

Anohni – Hopelessness
Bat For Lashes – The Bride
David Bowie – Blackstar
Jamie Woon – Making Time
Kano – Made in the Manor
Laura Mvula – The Dreaming Room
Michael Kiwanuka Р Love & Hate
Radiohead – A Moon Shaped Pool
Savages – Adore Life
Skepta – Konnichiwa
The 1975 – I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it
The Comet Is Coming – Channel the Spirits
