The Recording Academy®’s GRAMMY Recordings® and Atlantic Records will release the 2017 GRAMMY® Nominees album on Jan. 20, 2017, in stores and via digital retailers. The latest installment of the best-selling series — now in its 23rd year – features a collection of the biggest and brightest 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’s charitable organizations focused on music education programs and critical assistance for music people in need.

“We are delighted to partner with Atlantic Records to once again present one of the most diverse mix of tracks on one album,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy. “This great collection of music, coupled with the sweepstakes opportunity that will allow two lucky fans a chance to experience Music’s Biggest Night® firsthand, constitutes an extremely fulfilling project, with proceeds supporting the crucial work our charitable foundations perform throughout the year.”

“We are always happy and honored to partner with the Recording Academy to release the GRAMMY nominees album,” said Atlantic Chairman & COO Julie Greenwald. “By bringing together in one place music that crosses multiple labels and genres, this collection celebrates what a fantastic year it’s been for music. All of us at Atlantic are not only excited to be able to showcase an incredible diversity of amazing artists, but we’re especially proud to help support the tremendous work being done by the GRAMMY Museum Foundation and MusiCares.”
