Apple today is rolling out a new hub focused on songwriters, producers, and session musicians. Similar to previous content hubs, "Behind the Songs" is a curated collection of playlists, videos, interviews, and radio shows (via Engadget).

apple music hub
You can find the hub by searching "songwriter" or "songwriters" in Apple Music, although it does still appear to be rolling out and isn't yet available to all users.

In the hub, ‌Apple Music‌ is highlighting its existing playlists like "Song Book" and "Behind the Boards," which are made to showcase specific songwriters and producers in popular music. A series of videos called "Lyrics to Live By" has artists like Dua Lipa and Halsey discussing some of their own songwriting.

Apple's new hub follows a few months after Spotify debuted its own songwriter-focused section, which elevates the people who write and produce the music in every playlist.

More stuff thrown into the already cluttered and confusing 'Browse' tab.

Very cool idea.

Agree with others. Fix the slowness. The interface is confusing. Missing basic stuff like gapless.

I really like Apple music. But I can’t quit Spotify. Not sure why, outside it’s just faster and more reliable.

Apple seems to be very active with Apple Music. I guess the app will get a bit of a new design with iOS15.
Meanwhile Spotify is only crying in a corner. When will they show some lyrics? Maaan, that should just be a basic feature..

And after all their whining, when will they finally have HomePod support? They even cried about it on a specially made webpage. Now Apple has opened up a lot of other streaming services implemented HomePod support. But now Spotify is keeping quiet. Their company-culture must be crap

I would rather Apple purchase master recordings and give the ability to listen to isolated instrument stem tracks.
Masters are rarely up for sale and anything slightly popular normally commands insane prices, but a great idea to be able to listen to the individual stems.
