Content Curation and Filtration: Signal vs. Noise
October 12, 2022, 5:00:00 PM
Over 60,000 new tracks are being released each and every day. With so much content available, it can be easy to get lost in the woods. Where are we supposed to begin when trying to find music that suits our wants and needs? Further yet, how are we supposed to filter through the millions upon millions of songs that are out there? Is it possible to make sure what's being played in school, in the gym, in stores, or in the car is appropriate while still being engaging?
LyricFind is the world leader in lyric licensing and data services. With over 16 years in business, LyricFind is trusted by the top companies in the industry like Amazon, Google, YouTube, Deezer, Xperi and Pandora.
