Upcoming Tours, New Releases: What’s Next for 2015's Grammy Winners

From touring the country to dropping new albums, see what Beck, Sam Smith, Paramore and other artists are planning next fresh off of their Grammy wins from Sunday night.

Music's biggest names celebrated with their gold gramophones at the 57th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night. But what happens now that the show is over?

Read below to see what to expect next from this year's Grammy winners:


The singer-songwriter took home two awards at the Grammys: best rock album and the ceremony's most coveted award, album of the year. Beck will be headlining two music festivals in May — the Boston Calling Music Festival and the Hangout Music Festival — alongside Tenacious D, Tove Lo, Foo Fighters, Zac Brown Band and other musicians.

Sam Smith

Smith was the biggest winner of the night, taking home trophies in four major categories: record of the year, song of the year, best new artist and best pop vocal album. Though he just recently released the sixth single off of his debut album, In the Lonely Hour, a new version of the previously released "Lay Me Down," Smith told NME News late last year that he had already come up with a possible song and a working title for his second record that's still to come. The British singer is also gearing up for the 2015 Brit Awards, which will take place on Feb. 25. Smith is nominated for British breakthrough act and British male solo artist, among other categories.

A Great Big World

The duo won their first Grammy for best pop duo/group performance at Sunday's ceremony for their collaboration with Christina Aguilera on the track "Say Something." A Great Big World's next gig is at sea, as a part of the lineup for Train's Sail Across the Sun Cruise, which departs from Miami on Feb. 13.

Jack White

The rock musician won best rock performance and best boxed or special limited edition package for his latest hit, "Lazaretto." White will be performing in five countries throughout March and will return to the U.S. in April to play at this year's Coachella festival.

Pharrell Williams

The "Happy" artist took home the Grammy award for best urban contemporary album, best music video and best pop solo performance. Williams, who has recently released new music for the Dope and SpongeBob Movie soundtracks, will appear next as a coach on the eighth season of NBC's The Voice, premiering Feb. 23.

Kendrick Lamar

Though Lamar's latest single, "i," won the Grammy for best rap performance and best rap song, the rapper's full studio album still has yet to be released. In an interview with Billboard, he revealed that details about the upcoming record, set to drop within the first half of 2015, are under wraps — even down to the album title.


Paramore's single "Ain't It Fun" won the band its first Grammy award for best rock song at Sunday night's show. Fresh off of their win, the rock band will traveling around the country from April to May for a string of live concerts as part of their Writing the Future: An Intimate Evening of Music With Paramore show. Tickets are already sold out in four venues, including Los Angeles' Dolby Theatre.

St. Vincent

St. Vincent took home the trophy for best alternative music album for her self-titled record. On Feb. 9, the singer will drop a deluxe edition of St. Vincent in the U.K., which will feature bonus tracks including the newly released "Bad Believer" (the album will only be available for digital download in the U.S., starting Feb. 10). In addition, St. Vincent will embark on her Digital Witness tour, beginning Feb. 17 and ending Aug. 23, and headline the Boston Calling Music Festival alongside fellow Grammy winner Beck.
