Thursday, 19 September 2019 Written by Helen Payne

Dave has won the Mercury Prize 2019 for his debut album, ‘Psychodrama’.

Released in March through Neighbourhood Records, the rapper fought off competition from Anna Calvi, Black Midi, Cate Le Bon, Foals, Fontaines DC, Idles, Little Simz, NAO, Seed Ensemble, Slowthai and the 1975 to succeed last year’s winner, Wolf Alice, who took home the gong for their second album, ’Visions Of A Life’.

Dave accepted the award from Annie Mac at Hammersmith’s Eventim Apollo in London.

The South London artist toured the record across the UK in spring, and has headlined shows planned in North America, Europe and Canada throughout autumn.
