Hey, it’s okay. Maybe you were just way too busy and had absolutely zero time to stay in synch with the newest offerings in music and artists in 2012. No harm there. Luckily, the soon-to-be-released 2013 Grammy Nominees album will keep you tuned in to what you missed.
Available January 22, 2013, consider this 19th installment that rounds up this year’s 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards nominees to be the ultimate “Best of…” list in music. Hi, this IS the Grammys.
The nominations—i.e., a more concrete hint at album’s tracklisting—won’t be announced until December 5 during the airing of “The GRAMMY Nominations Concert Live…Countdown to Music’s Biggest Night” on CBS, but we have a handful of guesses: Mumford & Sons, Frank Ocean, Miguel, Luke Bryan, Ellie Goulding… Who else is on your GRAMMY wishlist?
You can even pre-order the diverse disc immediately after the concert wraps up.
It may also excite you to know that portions of the procees from the album sales will go to the GRAMMY Foundation and MusiCares Foundation, two charitable organizations of The Recording Academy that help support causes year-round, for instance Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
