    If you never submitted a song as a single you can submit it as an album album track like Truth Hurts right?

    And here’s my question

    So for example.

    this October 8 Dua releases a Flexi Disc version of Future Nostalgia. Will that count as a re-release of the album including all the songs?

    so like, in Grammys 2023 can she submit Love Again as an album-track off that Flexi Disc version? Does the Grammy rules work that way?

    hi!

    i believe what you are asking is: if an artist release a new version of their previous submitted album, can they submit the songs that were released as singles (that are also part of the OG record) during the eligible year?

    if that’s the case, i think the answer is no. Only live versions of the songs will be eligible for nominations.

    in your example, Oct. 8th is pass the deadline so neither the Flexi Disc or a version of any of the songs should be eligible for the upcoming GRAMMYs. Love Again is part of a winning album, so the only way that songs from Future Nostalgia are eligible is if Dua releases and submits a live version of them.

    hope this makes sense!

    To keep it as simple as possible, there’s four possible cases for eligibility.

    1) Your recording dropped during the deadline. (ie: Everything I Wanted, I Can’t Breathe)
    2) Your recording dropped during the past eligibility season(s), but it’s part of an album released during the current one. (ie: Circles, Truth Hurts)
    3) Your recording was made a single during the current eligibility season, even though its parent album dropped during the previous season, provided the album did not win a Grammy. (ie: Just Give Me A Reason)
    4) Your recording drops in one format during the current eligibility season, even if its wide release will be on the next one (ie: Love For Sale). This one is a bit tricky cuz the Academy is able to have the final say on whether or not you’ll be allowed to compete that year.

    Songs/albums that don’t fit into any of those are likely not eligible. As for album eligibility, it has to be mostly “new” recordings (meaning most songs need to be both released before the current deadline and not yet submitted). Also, IIRC, a song/album has to be recorded in its majority less than 5 years before it’s submitted. Otherwise it will only be eligible for categories like Best Historical Album.

    Regarding your example, it wouldn’t be eligible in any year since a) the album already won a Grammy and b) it’s not a new even version of the album, just a new packaging format. The only way Love Again would be eligible is if an alternate version is released, like a live version or remix.

    Chromatica Ball Tour just added two new dates in Tokyo!
    Content to promote the tour is expected to be announced next month

    But Gaga’s main project is the theme song for Top Gun
    About such song:
    “The song Gaga recorded for «Top Gun: Maverick» doesn’t lose the essence of the soundtrack from the first film. It’s over 3 minutes long, reminiscent of Berlin’s “Take My Breath Away”. I could define it as a classic epic ballad with a modern production”

    The song is expected to be released later this month

    I didn’t post this in this topic, but in the Gaga Thread.
    What’s going on?

    It wasn’t mentioned here but live recordings of a song/album track are eligible. Just like when Adele’s “Set Fire To the Rain” (live) won BPSP after 21 won/swept the Grammys and won AOTY, BPVA.
