Harry Styles and Kate Bush have been nominated for The Ivors 2023.

The Ivors Academy announced their nominations for its annual awards, which recognise British and Irish songwriters and composers, on Tuesday.

Harry and his collaborator Kid Harpoon were each nominated for three awards at the upcoming ceremony, as were singer-songwriter Cleopatra Nikolic, aka Cleo Sol, and music producer Dean ‘Inflo’ Josiah Cover.

The As It Was singer and his co-writer were each nominated for Songwriter of the Year. As It Was was also nominated for Best Song Musically and Lyrically and PRS for Music Most Performed Work.

Harry is also indirectly associated with a fourth nomination as his film Don’t Worry Darling received a nod for Best Original Film Score.

Inflo and Cleopatra worked together on Little Simz’s album No Thank You, which was nominated for Best Album – as well as SAULT’s nominated album 11 and hit track Stronger.

Running Up That Hill by Kate Bush, which experienced a resurgence last year thanks to Stranger Things, was nominated for PRS for Music Most Performed Work almost 38 years after its original release.
