LyricFind+Google = a lot of lyrics.
Today, LyricFind has joined forces with Google to bring more lyrics to the search engine, as well as administer rights.
LyricFind is the world’s largest lyric licensing service with lyrics from more than 4,000 publishers across 100 countries. This vast library of lyrics is now coming to Google’s search results, as well as the Google Play music app. The company also boasts lyrics from all of the majors: Universal Music Publishing Group, Sony/ATV, Warner/Chappell Music Publishing and Kobalt.
LyricFind CEO Darryl Ballantyne says…
”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.”
LyricFind has been driving the creation of a global lyrics infrastructure for all platforms, and the Google partnership aims to solidify their mission. The company’s aim is to not only bring lyrics to music fans to help them engage with their favorite artists, but they also aim to help songwriters and rightsholders by collecting new royalties on their behalf. Not only does the company track and report royalties, but they also pay royalties to publishers on a song-by-song and territory-by-territory basis, which comes a good news for content creators and rights holders.
But it’s Google, so where’s the catch?
