Sting to receive Fellowship at The Ivors with Amazon Music and tickets now on sale

The Ivors with Amazon Music celebrates songwriters and screen composers. It is one of the most loved and respected music awards.

We are delighted to collaborate with Amazon Music to celebrate songwriters and honour their craft. This year at The Ivors, Sting will receive Fellowship of the Academy, and Amazon Music will broadcast live performances and interviews from the ceremony.

“Of all the awards in the world of music, The Ivors are for me, the most prestigious. Songwriting is a skilled craft and The Ivors Academy are its guild. So, I am delighted and honoured to be offered this Fellowship of the Academy, joining and acknowledging this extraordinary group of fellow songwriters, and all of those who went before us.” Sting

To commemorate the honour, Amazon Music has shared an exclusive demo of Sting’s track ‘If It’s Love’ off his latest album, The Bridge – offering a rare insight into the creative process of one of the world’s most eminent songwriters.
