SONGWRITERS GET A SPACE ON SPOTIFY

Spotify has launched its Songwriters Hub, a destination for promoting, discovering and connecting with the creators whose names are usually only in the small print on the backs of albums. (Remember print and backs of albums?)

The hub is home to a collection of Written By playlists, songwriting-focused podcasts, popular-songwriter playlists and a rotating slate of highlights (Featured Songwriter, Featured Releases, etc.).

Songwriter Pages, meanwhile, honor the likes of Ant Clemons, Noonie Bao, Sia, Bebe Rexha ... even Irving Berlin (author of "White Christmas," among others).

Jules Parker, Spotify’s Head of Songwriter and Publishing Relations, said: “With the launch of the Songwriters Hub, we’re continuing to develop how music is discovered, appreciated and enjoyed by the world. Supporting publishers and songwriters goes hand-in-hand with artist discovery. People know who an artist is; they don’t know who the writers are, necessarily. If we can help make those connections, we help people discover new music and open up potential career opportunities for the songwriter. It all ties back to our mission of helping creators live off their work.”

To access Songwriter Pages, right-click on a track (or, if you’re on a mobile device, tap the “...” next to the track), then hit “Song Credits.”
