LOS ANGELES (AP) — More change is afoot at the Grammys.

The Recording Academy announced Tuesday that three new categories will be added to the awards show: best pop dance recording, best African music performance, and best alternative jazz album. In addition, two existing categories have been moved to the general field, which means that all Grammy voters can participate in selection: producer of the year, non-classical, and songwriter of the year, non-classical. Previously, the general categories were made up solely of the “Big Four” awards.

These changes reflect an ongoing shift in the music industry, where producers and songwriters are increasingly more celebrated.
