In a previously post we reported that Spotify dropped their Musixmatch lyrics function and replace it with the greeting “humming is fun”, to the annoyance of their users. So it looks like Google are trying to steal a few of Spotify’s karaoke loving users, by partnering up with LyricFind.
LyricFind provides a database of lyrics, their catalogue features songs published by over 4,000 companies including Universal Music Publishing Group, Sony/ATV, Warner/Chappell Music Publishing and Kobalt.
“We’re happy to expand the depth and quality of lyrics available on Google’s services. We’re working together to make lyrics available to a larger audience in a faster and more efficient way.” Darryl Ballantyne, CEO of LyricFind, Stated.
LyricFind will also be integrated into Google’s search results.
Ballantyne goes on to say concerning the deal with Google “We’re happy to expand the depth and quality of lyrics available on Google’s services.”
“We’re working together to make lyrics available to a larger audience in a faster and more efficient way.”
The announcement on the LyricFind website states “LyricFind has been the main driver behind creating a legal and global lyric infrastructure for all platforms, and its partnership with Google further strengthens this mission”
“By helping to source lyrics for Google’s search results and Google Play Music, lyricFind continues to demonstrate how lyrics data can be integrated into a variety of services for music discovery and monetization.”
