Flume isn't quite done winning all the awards. The Australian electronic artist, who recently won a Grammy for best Dance/Electronica album and took home eight ARIA Awards last year, is now the leading nominee at the upcoming APRA Music Awards in Australia.

The electronic artist, real name Harley Streten, has been nominated four times in the prestigious music awards in the categories of Most Played Australian Work and Dance Work of the Year for both Say It and Never Be Like You.

The annual awards which celebrate songwriters are in their 35th year with a few previous winners competing for more prizes at the ceremony in Sydney next month.

Adelaide's Sia Furler who already has seven APRA music awards has three nominations this year for Most Played Australian Work for Cheap Thrills and Pop Work of the Year for her songs Alive and Cheap Thrills.

Heavyweights of Australian music Hilltop Hoods, The Veronicas, Nick Murphy (previously known as Chet Faker) and Troye Sivan are all up for two awards.

The nominees for the coveted Song of the Year includes Tim Minchin with his socially charged song Come Home (Cardinal Pell) and also Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds for Skeleton Tree from the band's 16th album of the same name.

For the first time a voting academy made up of previous nominees of the award including The Preatures' Isabella Manfredi and Jack Moffitt, Katie Noonan, Troy Cassar-Daley and Paul Mac, will determine the winner of Song of the Year.

Songwriter of the Year will be decided upon by the APRA board of directors.

*The APRA Music Awards will take place at the ICC in Sydney on April 3 and will be hosted by Julia Zemiro.

APRA Song of the Year nominees:

Adore - Amy Shark / Mark Landon pka M-Phazes*

Come Home (Cardinal Pell) - Tim Minchin

Pool Party - Julia Jacklin

Satan - D.D Dumbo (real name Oliver Perry)

Skeleton Tree - Nick Cave and Warren Ellis
