    Capitol Records to Release "The GRAMMY Nominees" Album - It's out via digital and physical retailers on January 22

    It's Grammy time!

    The Recording Academy®'s GRAMMY Recordings® and Capitol Records have teamed to release the 2013 GRAMMY® Nominees album, which will be available January 22, 2013, in stores and via digital retailers. The 19th installment of the best-selling series will feature a bevy of this year's GRAMMY-nominated artists and hit songs across multiple genres. A portion of the proceeds from sales of the album will help support the year-round efforts of the GRAMMY Foundation® and MusiCares Foundation® — two charitable organizations of The Recording Academy.

    Following the success of last year's contest, music fans can log on here to pre-order the 2013 GRAMMY Nominees album and enter to win a trip for two to the 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards®.

    It's like a mixtape of hits, right?

    "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 Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy. "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."

    Dan McCarroll, president of Capitol Records 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."
