Spotify launches new feature, gives songwriter and producer credits
Mega streaming service Spotify launched a new feature that shows songwriter and producer credits of songs on the desktop platform. Now with the click of a button music lovers will be able to see the talented minds behind their favorite songs. All you have to do is right-click on a track and select “Show Credits” from the menu of options to view information such as performers, songwriters, and producers.
Spotify announced this new feature via their blog saying, “At launch, we’re showing information we have from record label-provided metadata, and will also display the source of the credits, so you know where it’s coming from,” reads the post. “We realize some of the label-provided credits are incomplete or may contain inaccuracies, but this is just the first step in displaying songwriter credits on Spotify. The feature will continually evolve to become more efficient, provide better functionality, and incorporate more information from industry partners over time.”
The new credits feature, along with the Secret Genius program, is another songwriter-focused initiative by Spotify, giving songwriters and producers their just dues and supporting the creative community.
