Adele and Ed Sheeran shortlisted for Song of the Year at BMI London Awards

Adele and Ed Sheeran are among those in the running for the title at the BMI London Awards, due to be held at The Dorchester on October 10th!

Adele’s Hello is in the running to be crowned Song of the Year at this year’s BMI London Awards, due to be held at The Dorchester on October 10th. Also in the running are Ellie Goulding’s ‘On My Mind’, Ed Sheeran’s ‘Thinking Out Loud’ and George Ezra’s ‘Budapest’. This is the highly coveted award for the most played song of 2015 on radio and TV in the US, which will be presented in London by BMI, the global leader in music rights management.

Just over half of the songs shortlisted in the Top Ten for Song of the Year are from British songwriters, proving once again that the country is a hotbed of musical talent, with a global reach. BRIT winner Sam Smith claimed the Song of the Year trophy last year for his smash hit Stay With Me.

The gala event will also honour the internationally-celebrated songwriter Sting as a BMI Icon at its annual BMI London Awards. As well as a former member of The Police, Sting has achieved great solo success and he will follow previous recipients including John Lydon, Ray Davies, Van Morrison and Bryan Ferry.

The BMI London Awards recognises the UK and European songwriters and publishers of 2015’s most-performed songs on radio and TV in the United States. They are hosted by BMI President and CEO Michael O’Neill, BMI Senior Vice President, Writer/Publisher Relations Phil Graham and BMI Executive Director, Writer/Publisher Relations, Europe and Asia Brandon Bakshi.
