Ed Sheeran has received three nominations for this year’s Ivor Novello Awards.

Sheeran has received two nominations in the PRS for Music Most Performed Work category.

Ed is also nominated for the Songwriter of the Year award, although he faces competition from Raye, Dave, Adele and Coldplay for the accolade.

Adele – who released her long-awaited album ’30’ last year – is also in contention for the Best Song Musically and Lyrically gong for ‘Easy On Me’.

Elsewhere, Inflo – who is one of the most influential producers in the world – leads the list of nominees with four nods in total.

The acclaimed hitmaker has received three nominations in the Best Album category and one for the Best Contemporary Song gong.

Laura Mvula is also competing for the Best Album prize and the 35-year-old star is thrilled that her record, ‘Pink Noise’, has been recognised.

Laura made the album during lockdown after being dropped by her record label.

Reflecting on her journey over recent months, she said: “Sometimes it was hard to imagine getting to the finish line, so to know that it has made some impact in such strange times is really exciting for me.”

The Ivor Novello Awards are the most prestigious songwriting awards in the UK, and Laura is delighted to see such a diverse list of nominees this year.

She explained to the Guardian newspaper: “They need to know that they can do whatever they want to do, especially when it comes to creativity and the arts. I’m genuinely thrilled to feel empowered and celebrated, and to be a symbol of something that is needed and positive in this ever-changing climate.”

Meanwhile, Ashaine White, Luz, Matilda Mann, Naomi Kimpenu and PinkPantheress have all been nominated for the Rising Star award.

The awards will be held at Grosvenor House in London on May 19.
