Posted 11/3/2013 8:04:00 AM

This year's Mercury Prize goes to James Blake and his album Overgrown. For those of you not familiar with the Mercury Prize, then the best thing to compare it to would be The Grammys "Best Album" award. This is considered the most prestigious award in the UK for music, and James Blake is a winner. Not only does Blake get this high honor, but his album Overgrown saw a 2500% increase in sales (according to Amazon UK) following the announcement of the award. Incredible! Be sure to check out the rescheduled James Blake show at Emo's on 3/24.
