Soul star Adele looks set to reign supreme at the upcoming Ivor Novello Awards in Britain after landing four top nominations.

The singer's hit record 21 has been tipped in the Album Award category, alongside Kate Bush's 50 Words For Snow and Let England Shake by PJ Harvey, while her track Rolling In The Deep faces competition for the Best Song Musically and Lyrically from Florence and the Machine's Shake It Out and The A Team by Ed Sheeran.

Adele, who won six Grammy Awards and two Brits earlier this year, is a double threat in the PRS for Music Most Performed Work category - Rolling In The Deep and Someone Like You have been named as contenders, as has The Flood by Take That.

Newcomer Lana Del Rey has also been recognized - her track Video Games will fight it out with James Blake's The Wilhelm Scream and Nero's Promises for the Best Contemporary Song honor.

The winners will be unveiled at the annual ceremony, which recognizes excellence in British music writing, in London on May 17th.
