PJ Harvey has won the Mercury Prize for Let England Shake. It’s her second win, having already claimed the prize in 2001 for Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea. She was given the award at a ceremony in London tonight and beat out such fellow nominees as Adele, James Blake, Anna Calvi, Elbow, Everything Everything, Metronomy, and others.

The Mercury Prize is awarded each year to the best album released by a British artist. It began in 1992 and previous winners have included The xx, Elbow, Suede, Pulp, Portishead, Klaxons, Arctic Monkeys, Franz Ferdinand, Badly Drawn Boy, Antony and the Johnsons, Primal Scream, and others.

“It’s really good to be here as when I last won 10 years ago on September 11 I was in DC watching the Pentagon burn from my hotel room,” said Harvey when accepting the award, referring to her 2001 win.
