The nominees for the U.K.'s prestigious Mercury Prize were announced last week and among the short list of names: English singer-songwriter Michael Kiwanuka. On his soulful debut album, Home Again, this 25-year-old artist showcases a new voice that reminds many of some classic old voices. Kiwanuka tells us about his favorite artists, from Marvin Gaye to Alt-J, and plays two stripped-down songs in the Soundcheck studio.

  • "Tell Me A Tale"
  • "I'm Getting Ready"
