21 September 2021

Renowned producer Fraser T Smith and rap star Dave have scooped up an Ivor Novello Award for their Es Devlin-assisted collaboration!

The pair were awarded Best Contemporary Song by the Ivors – which celebrates the best in songwriting and composing in Britain – for their efforts on “Children Of The Internet”.

Speaking on the award, Fraser said: “I’m so honoured to take home this win alongside Dave and Es Devlin for ‘Best Contemporary Song’ for ‘Children Of The Internet’ from my debut album as Future Utopia, ’12 Questions’. I’ve been part of the Ivors family for a long time now, and it’s incredible to be recognised for my songwriting with some of the world’s most talented artists.

“It’s especially amazing to win for the third time with Dave – his poetic interrogation of the political system is unrivalled, and I knew from the off this song was going to be one of my standout moments from the record. I feel very proud of this moment, and the whole team.”

“Children Of The Internet” is taken from Fraser T Smith’s debut album, 12 Questions, and explores the impact of technology – specifically social media – on the younger generation.

Also picking up awards at the Ivors this year was Obongjayar, Lianne La Havas, Harry Styles and more.
