Lana Del Rey, ‘So Surprised’ Over Grammy Nominations, Says She Only Learned the Awards Submission Process This Year

“I woke up so surprised,” Del Rey said with a giggle in a black-and-white clip posted on Instagram Friday (Nov. 10). “Very excited about these Grammy nominations. Five!”

Del Rey is nominated for album of the year and best alternative album for Did You Know That There’s a Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd; song of the year and best alternative music performance for “A&W,” and best pop duo/group performance for “Candy Necklace” feat. Jon Batiste.

“And we’re singing on I think two of the other albums that are nominated, with Jon and Taylor,” she added, referencing her contributions to Jon Batiste‘s World Live Radio (“Life Lesson”) and Taylor Swift‘s Midnights (“Snow on the Beach”).

Plus, Jack Antonoff is nominated for producer of the year for his work on Del Rey’s Did You Know…, Swift’s Midnights, as well as The 1975‘s Being Funny in a Foreign Language.

Smiling in the Instagram clip, Del Rey said, “It’s just such a fun day. It’s really just about how excited everybody else is, and everybody calling, getting in touch and saying hi. All about the process and just one more exciting thing that’s happening.”

Adding that she was “genuinely touched” by the nominations and support on Friday, Del Rey said, “I in fact only learned this year that you have to submit your own album if you want to be nominated. Even that was out of my wheelhouse, but I did do that.”

Recording Academy members and record companies submit work released during the eligibility period that they believe is worthy of recognition by the Grammys; the submissions for the 2024 awards ceremony had to be released between Oct. 1, 2022 to Sept. 15, 2023. The Academy’s voting members then participate in the nominating process that determines finalists in each category, and later the final voting process that determines winners.

If Del Rey takes home an award at the 2024 ceremony, it will be her first Grammy win.

Del Rey was in Nashville hanging out with Beth and Luke Laird and Nikki Lane, and earlier this week appeared on The Ryman stage to sing backup for Lukas Nelson on “Find Yourself.”
