The publication date for the BBC Sound Of 2013 longlist is now less than two weeks away, but we already know who’s going to be big next year, thanks to MTV, which has already announced its Brand New For 2013 shortlist. A few of the names on the list should be familiar to you, though others might not be, so pay attention. Tom Odell, by the way, is guaranteed a Mercury nomination next year, so there’s one to write down as a one to watch.
Voting for the winner will open on 14 Jan at brandnew.mtv.co.uk with the public’s top choice unveiled on 1 Feb.
