Bowie received nominations for British Male Solo Artist and British Album of the Year. The influential singer's 2013 album, The Next Day , is the first studio effort he's released in a decade.
Bowie has won two previous Brits during his career, a Best British Male honor in 1984 and an Outstanding Contribution award in 1996.
Meanwhile, Ethan Johns and Paul Epworth , who both worked on Paul McCartney 's latest album, NEW , are in the running for this year's Best Producer prize.
The 2014 Brit Awards will be handed out February 19 at London's O2 arena.
