SANTA MONICA–The Recording Academy’s Grammy Recording and RCA Records have revealed the track listing for the 2018 Grammy Nominees album.
Released on Jan. 12, 2018, in stores and via digital retailers, the latest installment of the best-selling series—now in its 24th year—features a collection of top-charting hits from many of this year’s illustrious Grammy-nominated artists. 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.
The 2018 Grammy nominees album features 21 hits from the world’s top recording artists and emerging talent, including Album Of The Year nominees Childish Gambino, JAY-Z, Kendrick Lamar, Lorde, and Bruno Mars; and Song Of The Year nominees Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee featuring Justin Bieber, Logic featuring Alessia Cara and Khalid, and Julia Michaels, among others.
“This album is an extraordinary representation of the diverse talent being recognized as Grammy nominees,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of the Recording Academy. “We’re pleased to partner with RCA to deliver this special collection of recordings and to raise funds and awareness for MusiCares and the Grammy Museum—two philanthropic organizations dedicated to improving the environment for music and those who make it.”
“This has been an incredible year for music across all genres, and this collection serves as a celebratory sampling of some of the most important songs released this year,” said RCA Chairman and CEO Peter Edge. “In addition, the entire RCA team joins me in expressing our excitement to partner with the Recording Academy on releasing this album, particularly because it benefits the crucial work done year-round by MusiCares and the Grammy Museum.”
