Lana Del Rey

Nominated for: Album Of The Year, Song Of The Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, Best Alternative Music Performance, Best Alternative Music Album

Did You Know That There’s a Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd? - American singer-songwriter Lana Del Rey follows up on her 2021 double release with Did You Know That There's a Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd. Stating that she wanted her latest record to have “a spiritual element”, Del Rey’s latest offering is complex, unsettling and profound. Under-appreciated as a writer, her latest entry is slightly obscure, with some fairly lengthy tracks, yet this ninth studio album is possibly her most important one yet.

James Blake

Nominated for: Best Dance/Electronic Recording, Best Dance/Electronic Music Album, Best Rap Song (WINNER)

Following collaborations with a whole host of hip hop artists over the past couple of years, including Kanye West, it was a surprise to see Blake return to his musical roots, with electronic, dance, and experimental music on his latest album. With varying textures, ambient soul and pulsating synths, Blake is incredibly engaging and at times, haunting.
