Bjorn ulvaeus

In September, Abba’s Björn Ulvaeus teamed up with UK songwriters body The Ivor’s Academy and the Music Rights Awareness Foundation for a new initiative called ‘Credits Due’. It’s aiming to ensure that all new recordings and songs have the correct metadata before they are uploaded to streaming services, including details of all the writers, performers and producers.

Now UK collecting society PPL has got behind the campaign, as part of its wider work around metadata that includes being a board member of standards body DDEX, and running IFPI and WIN’s data portal RDx.

“The launch of Credits Due is a welcome step towards a harmonised metadata system for the global music industry,” said CEO Peter Leathem.

In separate PPL news, last week it paid its latest distribution of international revenue: £15.2m (around $20.6m) collected from more than 70 collecting societies around the world.
