Arlo Parks wins 2021 Mercury Prize

Arlo Parks is the winner of the 2021 Hyundai Mercury Prize for the best British album of the year. Her 'Collapsed in Sunbeams' won the award over shortlisted albums by Ghetts, Black Country, New Road, Wolf Alice, Floating Points and Pharoah Sanders, Mogwai, and more. Alexis Petridis says Arlo Parks’ "warm voice and diaristic lyrics rightly earn her the Mercury prize".
