Lana Del Rey joins the female-heavy nomination list for the 2011 Ivor Novello Awards.
Adele has four nominations while the album award is an all-female category for the first time in the ceremony's history.
Justin Parker feels "the Adele effect" can only bring good to the British music scene.
"It's great to have really classic song-writing being represented with Adele," he said.
"I think without Adele, perhaps Lana may not have happened because it kind of opened a door for people to look at that kind of song writing, a bit more classic style of song-writing."
that the other album award nominees are PJ Harvey and Kate Bush.
I wish I had enough time to do that tea-bagging.
...guess I should just take it like a man.
[sean is a handsome chap in fairness and has nice arms]
but can see how that would be true at the time, pretty slow paced, a kind of weird sad sentiment for a pop hit
I quite like the album but have to skip that cos it's awful
on the remix EP.
i think everyone involved at the label/s have played it just about perfectly considering that they had on their hands, not 3 months ago an undergound artist who was only popular on the web, and now have a global pop megastar on the cover of VOGUE. good work however you slice it.
It definitely came out last year.
I'm sure this is 100% true and not just another part of the relentless sham PR campaign
despite Adele being promoted as an amazing songwriter, a true auteur with a complete vision etc etc, she didn't solely write ANY of the songs on 21. It just seems weird, you never seem to get that for male artists (within the more indie sphere, inb4 Robbie Williams etc), but WHY? Or do male artists/bands also have co-writers, but it's kept secret as it would be viewed as harming their credibility?
I didn't even mention Justin Parker. Just wondering why so many female artists who are sold as auteurs of their work (Adele, Lana Del Ray, Jessie J (at least initially), Ladyhawke a few years back) actually have outside input on almost every song they write.
unfortunately, terms like "creative ownership", "originality" and "musicality" are still related to credibility to most people, so yeah.
