fun. performed live at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards, held on Sunday, February 10th, 2013 at Staples Center in Los Angeles. The NYC-based band was of course among this year’s most-nominated artists, having earned six total nominations including a prestigious “Best New Artist” nod. “SOME NIGHTS,” their RIAA gold-certified debut, was nominated as “Album of the Year” and “Best Pop Vocal Album,” while the worldwide #1 single, “We Are Young (Feat. Janelle Monae),” was named in the “Record of the Year,” “Song of the Year,” and “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance” categories. Additionally, fun.‘s album, “SOME NIGHTS” recently reached RIAA platinum certification status for sales in excess of one million.
The multiple Grammy nominations already assure fun. a place in music history, establishing them as the first-ever rock band to score nods in the top four categories: “Song of the Year,” “Record of the Year,” “Album of the Year,” and “Best New Artist.”
fun. capped their extraordinary year with the worldwide release of their own “iTUNES SESSION” EP. Recorded at the storied Capitol Records Studio in Los Angeles, the EP (available exclusively on the iTunes Store) pairs unique versions of “SOME NIGHTS” favorites like the latest single, “Carry On,” alongside a genuinely special cover of Van Morrison’s classic “Queen of the Slipstream.”
