    Watch out for Beck’s “Hyperspace”, The Strokes’ “The New Abnormal and Dua Lipa’s “Future Nostalgia”. I really like the packaging for “Miss Anthropocene” too but i guess it’s a long shot.

    Viva la revolución.

    To clarify, this award is basically just for the album cover art?

    Yep. It’s awarded to the visual look of an album. Art directors receive credit (unless the artist is also involved ala Rihanna for ANTI).

    I don’t know what changes BTS has for this nomination. They’ve been nominated before but MOTS7 artwork is pretty simple, it’s the inside contents that truly make the album.

    I wouldn’t think it’s only for the cover art

    From the Grammy rules :

    The elements judged in this category include the package design, photography and/or graphic art of the entire package as well as any materials included.

    This category is always difficult to predict because the line ups are less commercial. The voters put effort into selecting the final 5 nominees. Which is why it’s one of my favorites.

    Based on the list I compiled:
    Beck, Hyperspace
    Dua Lipa, Future Nostalgia
    FKA twigs, MAGDALENE
    The 1975, Notes on a Conditional Form
    The Strokes, The New Abnormal

    R.I.P Chadwick Boseman
