KT Tunstall will receive the Outstanding Song Collection award at the The Ivors with Amazon Music, which takes place at Grosvenor House in London on Thursday 23 May.

The Ivors Academy has announced that KT Tunstall is set to receive an Ivor Novello Award in the Outstanding Song Collection with PRS for Music category. 20 years since KT Tunstall released her multi-platinum debut, Eye to the Telescope, which spawned the global hits "Black Horse and the Cherry Tree” and "Suddenly I See” – with the latter track claiming the Ivor Novello for Best Song Musically and Lyrically in 2006.

Since then, KT Tunstall has released eight studio albums, including 2023’s collaborative album with Suzi Quatro, Face to Face. She has also written music for film soundtracks as well as musical theatre, including the stage adaptation of the 1995 movie, Clueless. In her career KT has collaborated on record and on stage with the likes of Chrissie Hynde, Shawn Colvin, King Creosote, Seasick Steve, Jools Holland, Chris Difford, Simple Minds, Daryl Hall and many others, most recently Roger Daltrey.

“My relationship with the Ivor Novello Awards began 18 years ago in 2006, with “Suddenly I See” winning Best Song Musically and Lyrically. My statuette has remained the most meaningful of awards to me and coming full circle to receive this Outstanding Song Collection award feels like such a gesture of appreciation towards my work since then," Tunstall says.

KT Tunstall becomes the fifty-eighth songwriter to receive the honour, following in the footsteps of the likes of the likes of John Deacon, Brian May, Freddie Mercury and Roger Taylor (Queen), Bono, Jarvis Cocker, Russell Senior and Mark Webber (Pulp), Noel Gallagher, and KAMILLE – who won the award in 2023.

To commemorate the honour, an unheard, Amazon Music Demo of KT Tunstall’s iconic track “Suddenly I See” is being released exclusively via Amazon Music.

The Amazon exclusive demo of "Suddenly I See" is out now.
