Republic Records releasing ‘2019 GRAMMY Nominees’ album

Track listing to be unveiled at a later date

The Recording Academy’s GRAMMY Recordings and Republic Records will release the 2019 GRAMMY Nominees album on January 25th in stores and via digital retailers.

The latest installment of the best-selling series — now in its 25th year — features a collection of exceptional GRAMMY-nominated music for the upcoming 61st Annual GRAMMY Awards. A portion of album proceeds benefit the year-round work of the GRAMMY Museum and MusiCares — two charitable organizations founded by the Recording Academy that focus on music education programs and critical assistance for music people in need.

“We are very excited to partner with Republic Records to celebrate some of the extraordinary GRAMMY-nominated songs that have highlighted the past year in music, and we are thrilled to have music industry veteran Leslie Lewis continue in her role as our longtime producer,” states Neil Portnow, President/CEO of the Recording Academy. “This is a unique and meaningful project for the Recording Academy, and we are pleased to offer one lucky winner a chance to attend the 61st GRAMMY Awards. In addition, we are privileged to donate a portion of album sales to our charities the GRAMMY Museum and MusiCares.”

“We’re honored to join forces with the Recording Academy for this year’s iconic GRAMMY Nominees album,” says Monte Lipman, founder and chairman of Republic Records. “This body of work recognizes a moment in time and music, and more importantly supports artist-related charitable causes. I’m anticipating this year’s lineup will be as strong as any year in recent memory.”

Fans who pre-order the album get a chance to attend the 61st Annual GRAMMY Awards in Los Angeles. No purchase necessary to enter or win.

GRAMMY nominees were scheduled to be announced on December 5th, but delayed due to memorial services for former President George H.W. Bush. The nominees will be announced on Friday, December 7th.
