05 December 2018 (Toronto, ON) - The Recording Academy™'s GRAMMY Recordings® and Republic Records/Universal Music Canada, the country's leading music company, will release the 2019 GRAMMY® Nominees album on January 25 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," said 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," said 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."
