Taiwanese band Sodagreen’s album “Winter Endless” led this year’s nominees for the Golden Melody Awards, with eight nominations, including Best Mandarin Album, Best Song and Best Band.

The rest of the nominees for Best Mandarin Album were: Peggy Hsu’s “Swing, Inc.,” Eli Hsieh’s “Progress Reports,” Chang Hui-mei’s “AMIT2,” Tanya Chua’s “Aphasia” and PoeTek’s “Infinity.”

The Lifetime Achievement Award went to 64-year-old Taiwanese singer Tracy Huang, who has released more than 50 Mandarin, English and Cantonese albums since the 1970s and is known for her classic songs such as “Crying Sand,” “Sending My Love Across Time and Space,” and “Can’t Dream of You.”

Samuel Chou, convener of the jury, said one of the biggest highlights this year is the level of sophistication and diversity of the albums by new artists, some of whom entered the competition in the categories of Best Album and Best Singer.

This year 482 albums and 11,177 works were submitted for consideration, and 128 nominated works competed in 26 categories at the 27th Golden Melody Awards.



其他入圍最佳國語專輯獎的還有許哲珮的「搖擺電力公司」、謝震廷的「查理Progress Reports」、張惠妹的「AMIT2」、蔡健雅的「失語者」、熊仔的「∞無限」。
