Spotify 'Storyline' Let's Artists Tell Stories Behind Their Songs Instagram Style | hypebot

Spotify newSpotify is widely testing its own version of Instagram Stories for musicians and songwriters. "Storyline" provides curated commentary about each song running slideshow-style as the song plays 


Currently available to a limited group artists, Spotify's Storyline borrows from both the Genius app, which is already available within Spotify as "Behind The Lyrics" and the image slide shows of Instagram and Facebook Stories. Android Police found Storylines for Jonas Brothers’ “Sucker” and Billie Eilish (“Bad Guy,” “Bury a Friend,” “When the Party’s Over,” “Wish You Were Gay”). Techcrunch added MAX’s “Love Me Less.” Plus, Reddit users claim to have seen on it 2 Chainz’ “Forgiven,” The Beaches’ “Snake Tongue.”

We found an active "Storyline" for Maggie Rogers "Light On."  While playing the song, timed images with text ran slideshow style underneath the play button.

Some artists have been critical of the accuracy of Spotify's current lyric annotations.
