Former Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes has been nominated for the Mercury Music Prize, 20 years after his band's debut albummade the shortlist.
The singer was just 19 when Supergrass appeared on the list. His solo album, Matador, is more introspective and experimental than his Britpop band.
Other artists nominated for the £20,000 prize include Florence + The Machine, Jamie xx and Wolf Alice.
The winner will be revealed live on BBC Four and BBC 6 Music next month.
There are only two bands in the shortlist, which leans heavily towards singer-songwriters making intimate, confessional music.
Bookmakers' favourites Everything Everything failed to secure a nomination, with other notable absentees including Blur, Laura Marling, Foals and New Order.
Lauren Laverne, who revealed the shortlist on her BBC 6 Music show, said: "It's the perfect snapshot of where music is right now and where it might be heading in the future."
