Pandora Adds Detailed Song Credits As Recording Academy Plots ‘Behind the Record’ Campaign
Starting today, the first few credits are visible on a song’s Pandora details page. To view the full list of credits, users click on “See All Song Credits” to see all of the people who participated in in the recording from background singers to songwriters to the guy who played the marimba on “Sweet Emotion” (BTW, it was recording engineer Jay Messina).
"You always have to give credit where it’s due! Songwriters and producers put their heart into what they create! And to know who it comes from makes it even more special and personal,” says Grammy-winning R&B rising star H.E.R. of the announcement.
Behind The Record
Pandora is part of the Recording Academy's new “Behind the Record” campaign, a social media-based initiative launching tomorrow, October 25th, with over 200 artists helping to spotlight the need for credits and the range of creators who contribute to the music recording process.
