The Academy also changed the rules regarding album eligibility. To be eligible, more than 75% of a project’s content must be newly recorded or previously unreleased recordings. In the past, the Academy only required that 50% of an album’s content meet that requirement.
The 65th annual Grammy Awards ceremony will return to Los Angeles Jan. 31 after the awards ceremony’s relocation to Las Vegas in 2022.
