The Power of Lyrics in the Digital Age

Twenty-five years ago, music fans read song lyrics on the back of an album cover, or in the liner notes, while they listened to a new album. With the rise of the CD, that became more difficult with the small type required to fit the printed booklet.

In today's digital environment, a plethora of services and apps are distributing lyrics online and via mobile apps. This brings up a host of new issues -- how they are used, what these new lyrics services/apps mean to artists and songwriters, how they can be made more compelling, how lyrics connect with social media, and what the licensing/copyright issues are.
