Tidal have introduced credits for the behind the scenes crew in music

So many people are involved in making music and so few people know who is behind the magic – but don’t worry, Tidal are on the case.

Producers, session musicians, guest vocalists, and more. The people behind the music you love that you rarely hear about. Before music streaming they would at least have a credit in the liner notes of a record or CD. Nowadays it’s a lot harder to see all the personnel bringing tracks together.

Early last year Spotify introduced a section for every track that shows credits for the performer, songwriters and the producers. Now Tidal are taking liner notes digital by adding credits for everyone they can in songs and albums.

Tidal’s new interactive Credits highlight the songwriters, producers, engineers, band members and studio musicians, background vocalists and programmers. It gives listeners a chance to see who worked on the music they love behind the scenes and also makes it simple to see what else they’ve worked on.

Tidal’s Credits section will be split up into four categories:

  • Songwriter: This includes credits those with roles for crafting a song such as composer, lyricist, author.
  • Production: Includes producer, coproducer, mastering engineer, mixing engineer, recording engineer, arranger, and programmer — roles that supports the production of a track.
  • Musician: Features those who contributed on some level to a song’s instrumentals and vocals.
  • Misc: This includes other roles not directly contributing to a track’s creation, such as art direction, art work, A&R, etc.
