New Spotify App H1tchr Brings Full Album And Artist Info To Your Collection [Updates]

Ads by Google

Things have been relatively quiet in regard to new apps for Spotify lately, but a new one called H1tchr is blowing the doors off the silence and bringing an awesome new feature to the streaming music service. Back in the day, when people used to get their music on tapes and CDs, albums included liner notes, which helped give you a better idea of the back story of the musician and the music contained within the album. H1tchr is bringing the information in those liner notes to the digital age through Spotify.

Once the app is installed, simply play a song and H1tchr will pull in the data on the song and artist and give you a better feel for the back story of the band and song. It pulls in data from Wikipedia and Discogs, and the data is quite extensive. Of course, if a band is not available on either of these sites, then H1tchr will not be able to pull in the data, but let’s be honest, almost everything is on Wikipedia so that should not be an issue unless the band is incredibly obscure.

The right side of the screen includes interesting information about the band’s history from Wikipedia, and the right side brings the album’s track list, credits and galleries of the band. This is almost exactly the kind of information that you would find in the liner notes of an album, just brought forward to digital age.

H1tchr is available now on Spotify. It’s 100% free, and in my testing, it works exactly as advertised. Check it out, then hit the comments section below and let us know what you think.
