THE RECORDING ACADEMY's GRAMMY RECORDINGS and CAPITOL RECORDS will release the 2013 GRAMMY Nominees Album on JANUARY 22nd, and preorders will start TODAY at the Grammy.com and CBS.com websites, with an accompanying contest offering a trip for two to the GRAMMY AWARDS show on FEBRUARY 10th in LOS ANGELES. A portion of the proceeds from the album will benefit the GRAMMY FOUNDATION and MUSICARES FOUNDATION.
"It's an honor to join forces with CAPITOL RECORDS to deliver a truly diverse collection encompassing a variety of genres and highlighting today's most talented musicians," said THE RECORDING ACADEMY President/CEO NEIL PORTNOW. "After the success of last year's pre-order enter-and-win sweepstakes, we're once again thrilled to give music fans the opportunity to experience 'Music's Biggest Night' firsthand. And, it's gratifying to be able to continue our support of the crucial work that MUSICARES and the GRAMMY FOUNDATION carry out year-round."
CAPITOL President DAN MCCARROLL added, "CAPITOL is honored to collaborate with THE RECORDING ACADEMY on this prestigious series. This year has been a remarkably strong year in music, and encompassing the highlights of 2012 on a single release supporting these charities is immensely gratifying."
