Ivor Novello Awards nominations: Adele goes head-to-head with Coldplay


Adele will go head-to-head with Coldplay at this year’s Ivor Novello Awards.

The musicians will both be vying for the PRS for Music Most Performed Work, which honours the song which received the most broadcast, online and general performances in the UK in 2016.

Adele's When We Were Young will take on Colplay's Hymn for the Weekend and Adventure of a Lifetime in a bid to win the prestigious award.

Singer-songwriter Laura Mvula has also received two nods. Overcome, which she wrote with Nile Rogers is shortlisted for Best Song Musically and Lyrically, but will face tough competition from Blaine and Henry Harrison’s Telomere, and soul singer Michael Kiwanuka’s Black Man in a White World.

Mvula’s album The Dreaming Room will also be vying for the Album Award alongside Kiwanuka’s Love & Hate and Nick Cave’s Skeleton Tree.

In the Best Contemporary Song category, Love$ick by A$AP Rocky and Sexual by NEIKED ft. Dyo are nominated alongside Skepta’s track, Man. It marks the London born grime artist’s second Ivor Novello nomination following on from last year’s nod for his hit single, Shutdown.

Best Original Score will go to High-Rise, Kubo and the Two Strings, or My Scientology Movie, while Best Television Soundtrack will be contested between The Collection, The Witness for the Prosecution and War and Peace.

The nominees were announced at The Loft in London today by Tom Robinson.

Other awards, to be announced at the ceremony include International Achievement, Lifetime Achievement, Outstanding Song Collection, PRS for Music Outstanding Contribution to British Music, PRS for Music Special International Award and Songwriter of the Year.

Crispin Hunt, Chair of the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors [BASCA] said: “Nominations for the 62nd Ivor Novello Awards are as diverse and impressive as the contemporary UK music scene itself.

“As the only peer nominated music award ceremony in the country, we’re especially thrilled to be honouring such a cool selection of both emerging and established nominees; they are the true architects of the music we love, and reflect the creative global force that is British music writing.

“Our congratulations go out to everyone nominated today.”

The ceremony will take place on May 18 at Grosvenor House, London.
