The group behind the Grammy Awards – The Recording Academy – have announced three new categories to better represent modern music.

Best Alternative Jazz Album, Best Pop Dance Recording and Best African Music Performance will now get their own gongs, following on from some great new categories last year: Best Alternative Music Performance, Best Americana Music Performance, Best Score Soundtrack for Video Games and Other Interactive Media (among others.)

Obviously this does nothing to help the jokes about the Grammys having a category for kitchen sinks and everyone winning one, but the CEO explained “These changes reflect our commitment to actively listen and respond to the feedback from our music community, accurately represent a diverse range of relevant musical genres, and stay aligned with the ever-evolving musical landscape… By introducing these three new categories, we are able to acknowledge and appreciate a broader array of artists – and relocating the Producer Of the Year and Songwriter Of The Year categories to the General Field ensures that all our voters can participate in recognizing excellence in these fields… We are excited to honor and celebrate the creators and recordings in these categories, while also exposing a wider range of music to fans worldwide.”
