Alanis, U2's Mullen to help pick top album

Other judges include Jill Scott, U2's Larry Mullen Jr., India.Arie, DJ Paul Oakenfold, the production duo the Neptunes and film director Spike Jonze.

"It's simple," added co-founder Greg Spotts. "It's artists you know turning you on to other artists you may not know."

The winner will be announced in Los Angeles on Oct. 29.

This is the second year for the awarding of the music prize. Last year's winner, Icelandic band Sigur Ros, received a $10,000 check
