PJ Harvey's Let England Shake has been nominated in the
prestigious Best British Album category.
Since being released to wide-spread acclaim in February last year,
Let England Shake was awarded the Barclaycard Mercury Prize for
Album of the Year, making Harvey the only artist to have received
this award twice, previously winning in 2001 for Stories From The
City, Stories From The Sea.
It has also been recognised as the best album of 2011 by some of
the most influential publications worldwide*, described by The
Guardian as "..a genuinely great piece of war art… that speaks
urgently to our times."
EMI Music artists and partners picked up nine nominations when the
shortlists were unveiled, last night.

British Album Of The Year categories, while Laura Marling,
who won British Female Solo Artist last year, is once again in the
running for this award.
Other nominees include Noel Gallagher, Professor Green, Kate Bush,
David Guetta and Lady Antebellum.
Emeli Sandé, who will receive the Critic's Choice award, is
nominated for British Breakthrough Act.
