The Recording Academy's GRAMMY Recordings and Atlantic Records have partnered for the 2017 GRAMMY Nominees album, which is now available in stores and via all digital retailers. Now in its 23rd year, the album features a collection of GRAMMY-nominated music for the upcoming 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards. A portion of album proceeds benefit the year-round work of the GRAMMY Museum Foundation and MusiCares Foundation — The Recording Academy-affiliated charitable organizations focused on music education programs and critical assistance for music people in need.
The 2017 GRAMMY Nominees album highlights 21 hits from this year's GRAMMY nominees, including Album Of The Year nominees Adele, Beyoncé, Justin Bieber, Drake, and Sturgill Simpson; Best New Artist nominees Kelsea Ballerini, the Chainsmokers, Maren Morris, and Anderson .Paak; and Twenty One Pilots, Sia, Sean Paul, Demi Lovato, Ariana Grande, Kelly Clarkson, Lukas Graham, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Brandy Clark, Thomas Rhett, Miranda Lambert, and Tim McGraw.
"The 2017 GRAMMY Nominees album provides a unique playlist, and showcases some of the greatest songs and talented artists that make up this year's incredible nominees," said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy. "We are pleased to collaborate with Atlantic Records on this project, which provides support for the invaluable programs and initiatives our charities produce throughout the year."
The 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards will be held on Sunday, Feb. 12 at Staples Center in Los Angeles, and will be broadcast live on CBS at 8p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
