The 2023 Popjustice Twenty Quid Music Prize: Shortlist

The good thing about just popping posts on the front page every year or so is that in doing so I can still make the claim that Popjustice is one of the world’s longest-running music blogs. Incredible!

Anyway the shortlist for this year’s Twenty Quid Music Prize has now been announced. The artworks for the twelve short­l­is­ted singles look like the pictures above the paragraph above this one.

The titles of the songs and the people who perform those songs, meanwhile, are:

  • Body Better by Maisie Peters
  • Double Denim by SKYLAR
  • Easy Lover  by Ellie Goulding feat Big Sean
  • Escapism. by RAYE and 070 Shake
  • Falling In Love Again by Leif Coffield and Wuh Oh
  • Forget Me by Lewis Capaldi
  • Free Yourself by Jessie Ware
  • Light It Up by Moss Kena and SUPER-Hi
  • Lionheart (Fearless) by Joel Corry and Tom Grennan
  • Nothing Lasts Forever by Dylan
  • Nothing Left To Lose by Everything But The Girl
