Subscribe to Arctic Monkeys alerts

British rockers Arctic Monkeys are hoping to crown a triumphant 12 months by landing one of the biggest prizes in music after their acclaimed record Am was nominated for Best Album at the U.K.'s Ivor Novello awards.

The group's fifth disc missed out on the Mercury Prize last year (13), but it won the British Album of the Year honour at the BRIT Awards in February (14).

It also ranked highly in a number of end-of-year music polls in 2013, and was named NME magazine's best album of the year.

Now it has emerged the record is on the shortlist for a prestigious Ivor Novello award, lining up against Sing to the Moon by newcomer Laura Mvula and Push the Sky Away by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds for Best Album.

British singer John Newman has earned his first nomination in the Best Song Musically and Lyrically category for his single Love Me Again, which will go up against tracks by bands Palma Violets and London Grammar.

Scottish singer Emeli Sande is nominated once again after scooping two awards at the 2013 prizegiving - her single Clown will compete against Olly Murs' Troublemaker and Let Her Go by Passenger in the Prs for Music Most Performed Work category.

The ceremony, which honours excellence in British and Irish songwriting and composing, will take place in London on 22 May (14).
