Black Pumas Receive 2 Grammy Nominations For “Best Rock Album” + “Best Rock Performance”

Black Pumas have received two Grammy nominations today. Capitol Cuts – Live from Studio A has been nominated for “Best Rock Album,” while “Know You Better (Live From Capitol Studio A)” has been nominated for “Best Rock Performance.”

Recorded direct to acetate—all live, no overdubs—Capitol Cuts – Live from Studio A captures a powerful moment in time. After months of cancelled shows Black Pumas went to Los Angeles last fall and laid down eight explosive tracks at the famed Capitol Studio A. The recording brims with pent up energy, nearly bursting through the grooves on the expansive and mind-blowing seven minute rendition of “Colors.” A few weeks later the song would receive a GRAMMY® nomination for Record of the Year.

This Summer, the Grammy-nominated Black Pumas kicked off another leg of their long-awaited tour in support of their critically acclaimed self-titled debut album. So far, the band has performed countless sold-out shows across the U.S. and Europe and played at festivals including Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, BottleRock Napa Valley, Ohana Fest in Dana Point, CA, and Atlanta’s Music Midtown. The band will return stateside next week after a European run.
