(Classic Rock) David Bowie's Blackstar and A Moon Shaped Pool by Radiohead are on the shortlist for the 2016 Mercury Prize. Organizers today named the 12 acts in the running for the top prize at the 25th annual Mercury awards ceremony, with Bat For Lashes and The 1975 among the other nominees.

Bowie released Blackstar - his 25th album - on his 69th birthday this year. He died two days later, on January 10, of liver cancer which he kept secret from everyone but his family and closest friends.

Producer Tony Visconti described the record as Bowie's "parting gift" to his fans. Radiohead's ninth album, A Moon Shaped Pool, was released on May 8. Read more here.
