Ed Sheeran and Stormzy lead 2018 Ivor Novello Awards nominations

Ed Sheeran and Stormzy will compete for top honours at Britain's Ivor Novello Awards 2018.

Two of Ed's tracks, Shape of You and Castle on the Hill, are nominated for the prestigious PRS for Music Most Performed Work prize, alongside Rag'n'Bone Man's Human.

Stormzy's Gang Signs & Prayer is up for the Album Award, while his track Don't Cry For Me received a nod in the Best Contemporary Song category.

His album will face off against Everything Everything's A Fever Dream and British singer-songwriter Kate Stables' Moonshine Freeze. Don't Cry For Me's competition in the Contemporary Song section are his fellow rapper Dave's track Question Time and Cola, a collaboration between DJ duo Camelphat and electronica musician Elderbrook.

The Best Song Musically and Lyrically nominees are Sampha's (No One Knows Me) Like the Piano, Everything Everything's Can't Do, and Elbow's Magnificent (She Says).

Benjamin Wallfisch's music for Stephen King's horror blockbuster IT received a nod for Best Original Film Score, with Mica Levi's score for Jackie and Dario Marianelli's Paddington 2 soundtrack is also up for honours. The scores for Babs, a TV biopic of British actress Barbara Windsor, alternative history drama SS-GB and the BBC's adaptation of Jessie Burton's 2014 novel The Miniaturist will compete for the Best Television Soundtrack prize.

Video game scores are also to be celebrated this year, with music from Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, Horizon Zero Dawn, and Life is Strange: Before the Storm by Daughter the three nominees.

Winners in additional categories, including Songwriter of the Year, Lifetime Achievement and International Achievement awards, will be revealed at the star-studded awards bash at Grosvenor House Hotel in London on 31 May (18).
