Overnight, the nominations for 58th annual Grammy Awards were announced. Amongst the expected chart-dominating U.S. heavyweights — Kendrick Lamar, Taylor Swift, Drake and the Weeknd — there were a handful of surprises, including Australia's own Courtney Barnett and Tame Impala.
Barnett in the running for the Best New Artist award for Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit, while Tame Impala will attempt to replicate their recent ARIA successes when they go up against Alabama Shakes, Bjork, Wilco and My Morning Jacket in the Best Alternative Music Album category for their latest album Currents.
The awards will take place on February 15th in Los Angeles, with no local television partner yet confirmed.
