The seventh annual Shortlist Music Prize announces ten finalists: Arcade Fire, Burial, Feist, Justice, LCD Soundsystem, M.I.A., Spoon, Stars, Wilco and Working for a Nuclear Free City

The ten finalists were selected from the initial long list of 54 nominated albums by a panel of five listmakers: recording artists Gary Lightbody (Snow Patrol) and Ronnie Vannucci (the Killers), journalist Rev. Moose (CMJ), radio DJ Chris Douridas (KCRW) and the hosts of Hunnypot Internet Radio.

This year’s group of finalists contains more international artists than any previous Shortlist. Three of this year’s nominees are repeat finalists: Arcade Fire (2005), M.I.A. (2005), and Wilco (2003).

The Shortlist Music Prize winners will be announced in February.
