Coldplay, Laura Mvula and Michael Kiwanuka lead the nominations for the 2017 Ivor Novello Awards with two nods each.
The British rock group - Chris Martin, Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland and Will Champion - have been nominated twice in the PRS for Music Most Performed Work for 'Adventure of a Lifetime' and 'Hymn for the Weekend', which they will battle with Adele to win at the prestigious ceremony held next month, as she is up for her song 'When We Were Young'.
Laura, 30, is up for her collaboration with Nile Rodgers, 'Overcome', in the Best Song Musically and Lyrically category and her record 'The Dreaming Room' is up for the Album Award.
The 'Green Garden' singer will go up against Michael Kiwanuka's 'Love & Hate' and Nick Cave's 'Skeleton Tree' for the prestigious accolade, which recognises exceptional songwriting and consistency across an album as a whole.
And Kiwanuka is also up Best Song Musically and Lyrically for 'Black Man in a White World' along with Mystery Jets' 'Telomere'.
The Best Contemporary Song nominees are A$AP Rocky for 'Love$ick', Skepta and Josh Homme 'Man' and 'Sexual' by Dyo.
