Reclusive rock legend David Bowie’s first album in 10 years has scored him a string of nominations at this year’s Q Awards.

The Ziggy Stardust icon returned to the charts in March with his 24th album, The Next Day. He is now leading the way in the nominations at the magazine’s annual prizegiving, with six nods under his belt.

Bowie is up for Best Track, Best Video, Best Solo Artist, Best Act in the World, and new award, Best Event for his sold-out career retrospective in London. He will also fight for the night’s top prize, Best Album, against Biffy Clyro (Opposites), Daft Punk (Random Access Memories), Foals (Holy Fire) and Vampire Weekend (Modern Vampires Of The City).

Other acts leading the way are the Arctic Monkeys, Foals and Daft Punk, who all boast three nods.

As for the newcomers, the Best New Act trophy will be fought between Jake Bugg, Disclosure, Jagwar Ma, Valerie June, Laura Mvula, Tom Odell, Palma Violets and TOY.
The winners will be announced on 21 October at a ceremony in London.

The news rounds out a big week for Bowie, who is at the center of a rumored multi-million dollar bidding war between concert giants Live Nation and AEG to stage his first gig in eight years.
