With just over a week to go until we officially enter awards season – and a little more than a fortnight before we can expect to start hearing who has topped the list at this year’s GRAMMYs, Apple is now highlighting the 2016 nominees on both iTunes and Apple Music.
Music’s biggest night of the year is set to kick off on February 15, and with Lady Gaga having already announced that she is to embrace the arsenal of the world’s leading technology giant – Intel, as the star puts on a performance, that, Haus of Gaga says, will center around the invention of the “un-inventable” … it sounds like it’s going to be one night not to miss.
Exactly what Gaga’s big secret project – labeled Intel X – will turn out to be, is not yet clear. But perhaps interestingly, sources briefed on the performance claim that the on-stage announcement has nothing to do with any new music that the artist may (or may not) be planning to release.
Playlists By Genre
In the run-up to this year’s GRAMMY Awards ceremony, set to mark the 58th iteration of the U.S music awards show, Apple is already featuring a bunch of playlists on Apple Music that are aimed at fully showcasing 2016‘s roster of nominees – across all genres.
You can start listening, below.
In addition to highlighting this year’s list of nominees per musical genre, Apple is also making available a selection of specially-refined playlists covering the nominees for Song of the Year, Record of the Year and Album of the Year, alongside featuring 2016’s Best New Artists that are also up for GRAMMY nomination.
Access to the above playlists requires an Apple Music subscription for $9.99 per month.
Set to arrive as the 36th edition of the UK’s annual pop music awards ran by the British Phonographic Industry – that aims to highlight the very best of British music to have been released over the last 12 months, nominees for the BRITS 2016 include the likes of Coldplay, Adele, Florence, Ed Sheeran, Years and Years … and more.
And despite there still being just under a month to go until the broadcast for this year’s BRIT Awards ceremony goes live, Apple has begun showcasing the nominees in an exclusive section on Apple Music.
