LONDON: Veteran rocker David Bowie was nominated Thursday for two Brit awards alongside youngsters like One Direction, thirty years after he first won a prize at Britain's equivalent of the Grammys.

Bowie, who turned 67 on Wednesday, is in the running for best album with "The Next Day" -- his first record in a decade -- as well as best male British artist.

British-Irish pop phenomenon One Direction are also up for two prizes at the ceremony on February 19 -- best British group and best single, for "One Way Or Another (Teenage Kicks)".

They are also strong contenders for a third prize -- the global success award, which is based on international sales and which they won last year.

But it was newcomers who led the nominations, with British rockers Bastille and electro duo Disclosure competing for four awards each.

Bowie, who delighted fans last year with his surprise comeback, is at least 40 years older than any of his rivals in the male artist category -- Jake Bugg, James Blake, John Newman and Tom Odell. He won the same prize in 1984.

In the international categories, Lady Gaga, Eminem, Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry, Daft Punk and Pink are all up for prizes.
