The Recording Academy’s GRAMMY Recordings and Republic Records have teamed to release the 2016 GRAMMY Nominees album, available in stores and via digital retailers January 22, 2016. The 22nd installment of the best-selling series features an array of hit songs across multiple genres by this year’s GRAMMY-nominated artists. A portion of album proceeds support the year-round work of the GRAMMY Foundation and MusiCares Foundation, — The Recording Academy’s charitable organizations focused on music education and critical assistance for music people in need.
Beginning December 6th, the night before GRAMMY nominations are announced and in conjunction with “Sinatra 100 – An All-Star GRAMMY Concert,” music fans can log on to GRAMMY.com/2016GRAMMYAlbum, 2016GRAMMYAlbum.com, or CBS.com to pre-order the album and enter for a chance to win a trip for two to the 58th Annual GRAMMY Awards on Monday, February 15, 2016, at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles.*

“It’s an honor to celebrate and pay tribute to today’s most talented and inspiring artists,” said Avery Lipman, Founder/President of Republic Records. “We are proud to call ourselves partners with The Recording Academy whose care and support of the recording arts remains the foundation of our business.”
