I only found out today that it's possible to search Spotify according to record label, using this sort of search term:
It would be amazing if you could do the same for writers and producers, like this:
Here are four reasons this would be good.
1. For casual Spotify users it might help with discovery of new (and old) music.
2. For more advanced Spotify users it would help compile great playlists.
3. For writers and producers, they'd know their work was being recognised and valued.
4. For Spotify, point 3 might slightly reduce the number of writers and producers moaning about streaming, and would show that the service values everyone in the creative process. So at the very least it would be good PR.
(I'd also like to be able to find out writers and producers by right-clicking on a song - it'd be incredible if there was a 'Go to writer' or 'Go to producer' along with 'Go to artist' and 'Go to album'.)
I'm posting this here because I asked @SpotifyCares on Twitter and they said I should.
Hey @popjustice thank you for bringing this idea to our Community. Right now we don't have plans for this so we're marking this as 'Not Right Now'. As this grows we'll continue to bring it to our teams behind Search and we'll let you know as soon as we have an update. Thank you!
