Leonard here with the Artist Collective! This post is all about improving the experience for your fanbase! If you’ve sung along with lyrics to your favorite artists on Instagram stories or Spotify, you know how it can enhance the experience! This post and video from Evan Price dives into how you can (and should) provide this for your fans as well.
What’s more important – the music or the lyrics? (What if it’s both?!)
Good news – Spotify just announced their official partnership with Musixmatch to help provide a new feature called “real-time lyrics”.
So, What exactly are real-time lyrics and how can you make them available on Spotify?
If you have not put your music through a platform called Musixmatch, now is the time to do it!
What that means is your fans while they’re listening to their favorite song of yours on Spotify can actually read the lyrics and follow along in real-time!
What an awesome way to enhance your fan’s experience!
