Even if you’re a thorough, obsessive music fan (which several of us here in the EW office claim to be), the Grammy nominations can present a daunting array of talent. Sure everyone‘s heard the latest hits by Carly Rae and Taylor and Gotye, but what about Robert Glasper? Lamb of God? Sistema Bomb?
Chances are you don’t have the time or the interest to listen to every nominee in full, so we’ve taken it upon ourselves to compile the definitive 2013 Grammy nominees playlist on Spotify. It’s a healthy sampler of the nominees from every major category, from high-profile categories like Best New Artist to ones that fly a bit more under the radar (Metal, Americana). So throw it on shuffle, give it a spin, an find some great new music. And, of course, revisit those great tracks that you just might have forgotten. As if it were possible to forget “Call Me Maybe.”
