Wolf Alice’s acclaimed second album Visions Of A Life was the winner of the 2018 Hyundai Mercury Prize for Album of the Year…
… the band beat competition from short listed artists Arctic Monkeys, Everything Everything, Everything is Recorded, Florence + the Machine, Jorja Smith, King Krule, Lily Allen, Nadine Shah, Noel Gallagher, Novelist and Sons of Kemet.
Winning the award is the crowning achievement of an already tremendous twelve months for Wolf Alice. Since Visions Of A Life’s release in September 2017 - debuting at number two in the UK charts - the band have toured across the world, including a sold out show at Alexandra Palace, stadium supporting slots for Foo Fighters, Liam Gallagher and Queens of the Stone Age, and festival performances including NYC Governors Ball, Latitude, Sziget, Lollapalooza, and Summer Sonic in Tokyo. The album - which features the songs Yuk Foo, Beautifully Unconventional, Don’t Delete The Kisses, Formidable Cool and Space & Time - was named in the top three best albums of 2017 by NME, Q and Drowned in Sound, and led to a BRIT Award nomination for Best British Group, as well as two NME Award nominations.
Visions Of A Life is the follow up to Wolf Alice’s 2015 Gold-selling debut album My Love Is Cool, which also hit No. 2 in the UK charts and garnered a Mercury Music Prize Album of the Year nomination, as well as nominations for an Ivor Novello Award, a BRIT for Breakthrough Act and Grammy for Best Rock Performance.
