Harry Styles is surely on a Watermelon Sugar high, with the British musician leading nominations for this year's Ivor Novello Awards.
The awards, which celebrate achievements in songwriting and composition, also gave nods to Lewis Capaldi, Celeste and rapper Dave ahead of the 2021 ceremony, which will take place in September.
Former One Direction star Styles scooped three nominations in two categories alongside his writing partner, singer-songwriter Kid Harpoon.
The Sign of the Times singer is up for Songwriter of the Year and PRS for Music Most Performed Work, for both Adore You and Watermelon Sugar. The tracks come from Styles's second album, 2019's Fine Line, which followed his self-titled solo debut in 2017.
The 66th Ivor Novello Awards, which fete British and Irish songwriters and composers, will take place on Tuesday, September 21, in London.
The shortlist for this year's prizes also includes Scottish crooner Capaldi, who will go up against Styles in the PRS for Music Most Performed Work category, with his songs Before You Go and Someone You Loved.
Rapper Dave, meanwhile, is up for Best Contemporary Song for Children Of The Internet, while AJ Tracey, Celeste and Jamie Hartman, Kamille and MNEK will face off for Songwriter of the Year.
The awards are judged by individual category panels of The Ivors Academy-invited songwriters and composers, except for PRS for Music Most Performed Work. That category is awarded based on data for 2020 from PRS for Music, an organisation that represents the rights of songwriters, composers and music publishers.
“Over the last year, we’ve felt the power of songwriting and the stories told through music," Shaznay Lewis, Ivor Novello Award winner and chairwoman of the Ivors Awards Committee, said.
“The Ivors are so important because they celebrate where all the music begins – with songwriters and composers. The judges have chosen a selection of exceptional music that moves, unites and inspires us."
The awards, named after Welsh composer and actor Ivor Novello, was first launched in 1956, with notable winners including Adele, Coldplay, David Bowie and Eric Clapton.
