Blur's track The Narcissist is also among the songs nominated for the gong, 29 years on from the band's first Ivor nomination, as well as Tom Odell's Black Friday and The Japanese House's Sunshine Baby.

Victoria Canal's Black Swan has also picked up a nomination after the Spanish-American singer-songwriter won The Ivors' rising star gong last year.
