While revealing that she thought the band Shame should also have been nominated, Allen told NME what she thinks it is about her own album that made it worthy of nomination.
“I think that it’s because it hasn’t caught people’s imaginations – it’s just so frank and it is what it is that people don’t need to use their imaginations. It’s there,” Allen told NME. “It’s so black and white.”
Asked what she’d do if she were to win the £25,000 prize money, Allen replied: “I’d put it into my post-Brexit marketing account. Probably to pay for Visa applications come April next year.”
