David Bowie's comeback album and acclaimed releases by Jake Bugg, Arctic Monkeys and Foals will compete for the 2013 Barclaycard Mercury Prize.

Laura Mvula, Laura Marling, Rudimental, James Blake, Disclosure, Jon Hopkins, Savages and Villagers complete the shortlist for the best British and Irish album of the year, which was released on Wednesday (11Sep13).

The 12 acts will compete for a $30,000 (£20,000) prize, which will be announced in London on 30 October (13).

The shortlist was chosen from an entry of over 220 albums.

Bowie's The Next Day has emerged as the British bookmakers' favourite, just ahead of Am by the Arctic Monkeys.

Last year (12), indie rockers Alt-J picked up the prestigious award for their debut album An Awesome Wave.
