Shazam Database Now Has 2 Million More Tracks

Shazam [App Store] announced yesterday that new partnerships with record labels promise to increase their music database from 6 million tracks to 8 million. The application, which is the fourth most downloaded App Store app, picks up music over the iPhone’s built-in speaker and identifies the artist name, song title, album title, artist bio and a purchase link.

“With our music alliances, we gain access to the most relevant music well before many other services, which ensures that users can discover popular and niche music all over the globe,” Will Mills, Shazam’s head of music, said in a statement.
