It has been reported that Spotify is including songwriters and producer credits to their service. It will start off as a desktop-only bonus, but the company will import the credits to its mobile service later on. It hasn’t been clear if Spotify settled their popular industry metadata complications around mechanical rights, but this can be a start. Also, the record labels are giving the input for the credits.
“With the newly launched credits feature, we aim to increase songwriter and producer visibility and, in turn, foster discovery among new collaborators, industry partners, and fans.” – Tiffany Kumar, Spotify’s Global Head of Songwriter Relations
“We’re all artists in our own right, and every artist appreciates being recognized for their hard work. I’m excited and grateful to see this new feature on Spotify.” – Ali Tamposi, Songwriter
