LyricFind’s merchandise service, LyricMerch, is announcing its first marketplace partnership with eBay, one of the world's largest and most vibrant marketplaces. LyricMerch is licensed to create a range of merchandise bearing lyrics from fan-favorite songs, all of which are now available on the marketplace. As part of the partnership, LyricFind and eBay will also collaborate to create targeted merch campaigns that are tailor-made for shoppers.

“eBay is a trusted online platform for customers looking for unique gifts and niche items, which is what LyricMerch offers,” says Darryl Ballantyne, Founder & CEO of LyricFind and LyricMerch. “Having our products available on eBay and their global shoppers allows us to lean into a marketplace that already caters to our target audiences, making this a natural partnership.”

LyricMerch is the only producer of fully licensed apparel and lifestyle items featuring top artists’ lyrics and on-trend designs. “Licensing a lyric means more than just using it with permission. It means royalties go to the people who make music happen - the songwriters and rights holders,” explains Ballantyne. “When you purchase a LyricMerch t-shirt or mug, your purchase earns money for the writers and teams behind the lyrics.” As the collaboration moves forward, eBay’s insights will help better customize LyricMerch to appeal to its existing customers.

“Shoppers come to eBay for its breadth of rare, unique and right now inventory, from that one ‘I can’t believe I found it’ piece to the latest trending items,” said Chelsea Walsh, Senior Category Manager of Media at eBay. “LyricMerch and its range of curated offerings will be perfectly at home on our marketplace, and shoppers will be thrilled to find that perfect piece of apparel or merch that reps their favorite artists.”

Music fans and eBay customers will get their first taste of the collaboration this holiday season with a special LyricMerch gift guide. From The Rolling Stones and David Bowie to Ariana Grande, the exclusive designs will be perfect for the rock lovers and millenial pop fans on shoppers’ gifting lists.

LyricFind is pleased to announce a partnership with Fender Music Instruments Corporation, to provide lyrics to its new app, Fender Songs. The app allows users to practice, play along, and perform to millions of their favorite songs on guitar, ukulele or piano.

Fender Songs will draw on LyricFind’s extensive database of lyrics in more than a dozen languages, with lyrics that are fully vetted to get both aspiring and experienced players singing the right words along with their favorites. The integration of lyrics in Fender Songs weaves seamlessly into the app’s on-demand song learning for beginners and experienced players alike. The app provides several ways to access lyrics, including lyric overviews in practice mode and a “karaoke-style” scrolling lyrics in play-along mode.

"Lyrics play a powerful role in deepening our relationship to music, especially when we move from listeners to students and aspiring artists,” said LyricFind’s VP of Sales, Roy Hennig. “We're thrilled to partner with such a storied instrument and music brand to encourage more fans to become music makers."

“We’re excited to expand our digital products offering with Fender Songs. Songs will allow our players to access practically any song they want and provide quick and easy-to-learn chords they can practice directly on the app,” said Ethan Kaplan, General Manager of Fender Digital. “Working with LyricFind, publishers and record labels, we’ve been able to ensure artists' songs and lyrics are fully licensed, taking our relationships with them to a new level.”

LyricFind has worked for more than a decade to bring lyrics into new digital settings and formats, where musicians and fans want them most. By making sure lyrics are everywhere and fully licensed, LyricFind has created a new revenue stream for songwriters, artists, and publishers, strengthening listener engagement in the process.

“Old Town Road” took the early summer of 2019 by storm - breaking Billboard records and leading LyricFind’s top lyric searches at the end of July. While the most searched for lyrics of the summer in the US belong to "Old Town Road" - by summer’s end, Billie Eilish’s “Bad Guy” swooped in to take the crown globally.

To celebrate the close of summer, LyricFind, the world’s leader in lyric licensing, created an infographic for the world’s most searched for lyrics of the summer. Behind “Bad Guy” is Lewis Capaldi’s “Someone You Loved,” followed by Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road [Remix]” with Billy Ray Cyrus to round out the podium.

Finding music behind the wheel has undergone a minor revolution. It’s now possible to say your favorite line from your favorite song and have your car stream it immediately. Lyrics are making music search and discovery car-friendly, as voice command takes over how we engage with in-auto media and entertainment. 

The search for music will only get more interesting and nuanced as certain types of data are integrated into voice command systems. Soon, you may not even have to have a specific song or line in mind. As search improves, as machine learning and mood data get woven into the mix, it will be possible to use lyric data to find that perfect song for a rainy morning in Boston, or for a summer night’s ride down the 101. Your voice will trigger a contextual search that can dig up the sounds you’re looking for.

To celebrate this new era of music in cars, LyricFind, the world’s leader in lyric licensing, has ranked the top mentions of auto brands in music. Hip hop and country artists are most likely to give car (and truck) shout outs, but you’ll find different makes and models everywhere you listen. 

In this infographic, Mercedes dominates with 4,952 mentions in lyrics --country maven Maren Morris dedicated an entire song to “80s Mercedes”--followed by a mix of both luxury and good ol’ American names like Chevy and Ford. (“If it ain’t a Chevy, don’t raise it up,” recommends Snoop Dogg). 

Sorry, Ascari: Though you’ve got rhyming power, you’re at the rear with just two mentions.

LyricFind are happy to confirm an agreement with 63 UK publishers through PMLL, a division of the UK Music Publishers Association. Thanks to the MPA’s support, the remaining PMLL members and other MPA and MCPS members will be encouraged to opt in to direct licensing agreements with LyricFind, for whichever territories are not currently licensed. 

The agreement brings these publishers’ catalogs into LyricFind’s global lyric licensing system, which pays rights holders for every lyric display, as well as for lyric translations and merchandise featuring lyrics. The direct relationship with key publishers is invaluable in maintaining an accurate and sustainable lyrics licensing environment, while benefiting songwriters and rights holders by creating a new revenue stream from their lyrics.

“We are excited to work with these important UK publishers and songwriters in major new territories and to enable them to legally distribute, exhibit, and monetize their lyrics through our 60+ platform partners,” says Robert Singerman, SVP International Publishing at LyricFind. 

“Lyrics provide a new revenue stream for the members we represent,” said PMLL General Manager Viki Smith. “Publishers need these new approaches and I look forward to supporting them as they explore the services LyricFind has to offer.”
