A bassist calls for equal treatment under metadata.
"We want to know who's playing the music we're hearing, who produced it, who arranged it, where it was recorded and by whom,” reads the MoveOn petition page for ‘Show the Album Credits on Apple Music!’
Bassist Jon Burr launched the campaign yesterday (July 5), following the explosive launch week of Apple Music, which garnered many positive reviews, particularly around the service’s free Beats 1 international radio station.
"We chose to target Apple at this time because the rollout of Apple Music is missing this category of information," the petition's creator, Jon Burr, tells Billboard.
"Apple has shown a willingness to listen to feedback in the past, and is sensitive to their user base (which contains many of these same creatives). As the leader in technology and music marketing, if they set a trend, others may follow."
