The nominees for the 2013 Grammy Awards were revealed tonight in Nashville,
Frank Ocean had one of the biggest nights, earning nominations for Album of the Year (channel ORANGE), Record of the Year (“Thinkin Bout You”), and Best New Artist. Frank’s Tumblr post probably sums up his night best.
Rounding out the major categories, Alabama Shakes are nominated for Best New Artist, The Black Keys’ “Lonely Boy” is nominated for Record of the Year, Miguel’s “Adorn” is nominated for Song of the Year, and Florence and the Machine’s Ceremonials is nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album (!).
Among the other notable categories:
Producer of the Year nominees include The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach and Diplo.
Some familiar faces picked up nominations in the more obscure categories, including Arcade Fire for Best Song Written For Visual Media (“Abraham’s Daughter”), Dirty Projectors’ David Longstreth for Best Recording Package (Swing Lo Magellan), Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross for Best Score Soundtrack For Visual Media (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo), and The Avett Brothers for Best Americana Album (The Carpenter).
