The Barclaycard Mercury Prize Sessions are set to return to Channel 4 this week with a new format and a new presenter.

Radio 1's Alice Levine will be at the helm of the show's fifth series, which is the first to make use of a longer, multi-artist format. Each of the five weekly episode will contain performances by three artists, as well as backstage interviews across its 45-minute running time. The first episode is set to air at 12.05am on Wednesday 14 May.
