Tidal says this is just a first step in "creating an ecosystem where all contributors to the music making process are highlighted." The streamer says it is working with artists and labels to create this in-depth database of credits.
Tidal's expanded credits include:
- On an Artist Page, users can tap on the roles under the artist’s name or scroll down to view the artist’s enhanced credits section. From there, they can select “View All” or a specific role to explore (i.e. Songwriter, Production, Composer, Musician).
- Tapping on a specific role will filter the track list to display the songs on which that artist has contributed towards in that same capacity.
- By clicking on the downward arrow on the top-right corner, users can also sort the contributor’s track list by release date, popularity, title, or artist. So, if you want to listen to every Ariana Grande song Pharrell has produced this new feature creates automatic playlists.
“This is a milestone for TIDAL which, at the heart of the platform, is a space for music lovers to connect with their favorite artists in unique ways,” said Tony Gervino, TIDAL SVP, Culture & Content. “As a music streaming service and culture hub, it is important to acknowledge that music is a team sport – it takes a talented crew of sound engineers, lyricists, and band members to make a song stick. We recognize the challenges ahead in creating a thorough and extensive catalog, but we are excited to take this important step.”
The new credits pages are available across desktop, web and mobile app.
