Spotify is expanding its database of song and album credits with a beta launch of dedicated pages for songwriters.
The company's latest effort -- called songwriter pages -- uses metadata
to compile a list of songs that an artist has written and the musicians who the songwriter has frequently collaborated with, helping the user to discover more music they may enjoy.
The new program allows Spotify listeners to click on songwriters’ names in the credits. A profile pops up, showcasing all the songs that the songwriter has credits in on Spotify. It also showcases a list of their most frequent collaborators and links to their social media accounts. Missy Elliott, Justin Tranter, Meghan Trainor, Fraser T Smith, Teddy Geiger and Ben Billions are among the first songwriters accepted onto the beta.
How do you apply for a Songwriter Page on Spotify?
Just go HERE
to fill out an online form.
It’s pretty easy — and by easy, I mean it’ll take you a minute to fill out. No guarantees Spotify will quickly grant your request, of course!
But you absolutely should fill out that request form if you’re a songwriter. Songwriter pages could help relatively unknown musicians increase their visibility -- and hopefully their chances of being discovered, as well
