The country's music industry officials have released the long list for the seventh annual prizegiving, and past Polaris winners Patrick Watson and F**ked Up are also nominated for their albums Adventures in Your Own Backyard and David Comes to Life, respectively.

A 10-nominee shortlist will be announced on 17 July (12) and the winner of the 2012 Polaris Music Prize will be announced during a gala in September (12).
Arcade Fire picked up the honour last year (11) for The Suburbs.
