GRAMMY.com has officially launched ReImagined, a new Web series melding the legacy of the GRAMMYs with the present and future.
This interview- and performance-based series highlights contemporary artists revealing on how they were personally influenced by past GRAMMY-winning and/or -recognized songs and includes their own reimagined interpretations of the recording. Artists are able to select tracks that won in the General Field — which includes the Record Of The Year, Album Of The Year, Song Of The Year, and Best New Artist categories — or recordings inducted into the GRAMMY Hall Of Fame, a collection of many of the greatest recordings of all time, currently celebrating its 40th anniversary.
Artists participating in the ReImagined series to date include Eric Benét (Willie Nelson's "Always On My Mind"), the Lumineers (Fleetwood Mac's "Go Your Own Way"), the Shins (Bukka White's "Fixin' To Die"), Tamia (Patsy Cline's "Crazy"), and Youngblood Hawke (Phil Collins' "Another Day In Paradise"). Additional performers include Alberta Cross, Milo Greene, Ivan Neville, Jake Shimabukuro, TJ Stafford, Allen Stone, and ZZ Ward.
New ReImagined installments will be added on a regular basis.
