Self Esteem: The Mercury Prize ceremony will be like my wedding day

Self Esteem has jokingly described the upcoming Mercury Prize ceremony as her “wedding day” after being named as one of this year’s shortlisted acts. The 35-year-old singer, who was previously half of Sheffield-based folk duo Slow Club but now produces experimental pop, is nominated for her second album, Prioritise Pleasure. On the red carpet at a launch event for the prize in London, she told the PA news agency the honour marked the end of a “hopeless” period in her life.
