Track credits?
« on: August 27, 2017, 08:36:32 PM »
Is there a way to find track credits? For example: the new taylor swift song "Look what you made me do"

I don't trust the Wikipedia. It says it was produced by Jack Antonoff, but I read somewhere that Taylor Swift co-produced it, but I can't find any evidence of that. BMI/ASCAP online list songwriters.

There was an online MP3 store that I think was posted here where you could buy MP3s have some advanced credits if you expanded on the track name, but I can't remember the name? it may have been a non-English speaking site? Other ideas?

It's INCREDIBLY frustrating that in 2017 we don't have an authoritative source of music credits. :(

i agree- in this day in age of streaming and availability there should be a go-to archive of full music credits. i searched Quobuz.com and found credits:

Richard Fairbrass, Composer, Author - Fred Fairbrass, Composer, Author - Rob Manzoli, Composer, Author - Taylor Swift, Composer, Author, MainArtist - Jack Antonoff, Composer, Author - Sony/ATV Songs LLC, MusicPublisher - Taylor Swift Music, MusicPublisher - Sony/ATV Tree Publishing, MusicPublisher - Ducky Donath Music, MusicPublisher - Spirit Catalog Holdings, S.a.r.l., MusicPublisher

I agree, it is so annoying. And it's getting worse. The best site for credits is Tidal:

https://listen.tidal.com/

You don't have to be a user to check the credits of songs.

But it is all depending on the release/label if credits are among the details of a song.
And I liked it..

ASCAP and BMI are inconsistent as the songs can appear years after it was released or it shows a lot of unreleased demos, and they don't list producers. Discogs is way worse finding new music. Qobuz and Tidal are the most reliable yet terrible with full credits. Is there a way to check iTunes without software?

How can you check the accounts from the people involved when you don't even know who is actually involved?

Well, I listen and tend to recognize producers sounds.
I follow a lot of producers and songwriters, A&Rs, publishers and people from the biz so I check there...
