"The Promise" is nominated for an Ivor Novello award
Posted at 5:39 PM, 04 April 2010 -


Girls Aloud's "The Promise" is nominated for an Ivor Novello award for Most Performed Work. The song is running up against Lily Allen's "The Fear" and James Morrison's "Broken Strings". "The Promise" was written by Brian Higgins, Miranda Cooper, Kieran Jones, Jason Resch, Carla-Marie Williams, Tim Powell and Nick Coler (published by Warner/Chappell Music).

"The Promise" is Girls Aloud's fourth number one single in the UK Singles Chart and won "Best British Single" at the BRIT Awards 2009. It was the first single to be taken from the group's fifth studio album Out of Control.

Brian Higgins said that Xenomania knew that "The Promise" was "the piece of music Girls Aloud needed to announce them as a supergroup in this country": "'The Promise' was the sound of a big group, a group about to be huge. They needed the theme tune to the biggest girl group on the planet".

In the past, Xenomania have been nominated for Gabriella Cilmi's "Sweet About Me" and Sugababes' "Hole In The Head". In 1999, Cher's "Believe" won three Ivor Novello awards for Best Song Musically and Lyrically, Best Selling British Single (decided by sales) and International hit of the year.

The Ivor Novello Awards recognise the best British songwriting and composing. The ceremony will take place on Thursday 20th May 2010 at the Grosvenor House, London. See the full list of nominees.
