Spotify Launches New Songwriter Credits Feature

Spotify has implemented a new songwriter credits feature that will enable users around the world to view songwriter and producer credits for tracks on the desktop platform. Information on artists, songwriters, and producers will be available by simply right-clicking on a track and selecting “show credits” from the menu of options.

During the launch phase in this first step in displaying writer credits, Spotify will highlight information from label-provided metadata and will display the source of the credits. As the process evolves, the feature will become more efficient and provide better functionality as the company incorporates additional information from industry partners.

“Songwriters are an integral force behind the music we love,” said Tiffany Kumar, Global Head of Songwriter Relations, Spotify. “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.”

“The more we share information, the more opportunities we can help create for songwriters,” added Annika Goldman, ‎Director of Music Publishing Operations, Spotify. “This is just the beginning of making songwriter and producer credits more easily available to Spotify listeners, and we look forward to continually improving that information, in close collaboration with our music industry partners.”
