Google will soon begin showing song lyrics in search result because the company has finalized a deal with world's biggest lyrics service provider LyricFind. The Toronto-based LyricFind reported on Monday that it marked an arrangement with Google under which it will offer lyrics from more than 4,000 distributors on Google's list and inside Google Play Music application.
Declaring the partnership, LyricFind CEO Darryl Ballantyne said, "We're happy to expand the depth and quality of lyrics available on Google's services. We're working together to make lyrics available to a larger audience in a faster and more efficient way." The association will give new source of incomes to music distributors and lyricists. Under the association, Google began demonstrating lyrics in the search result in the US from Monday and will soon roll out the same to more markets.

"LyricFind has been the main driver behind creating a legal and global lyric infrastructure for all platforms, and its partnership with Google further strengthens this mission. LyricFind collects new royalties for songwriters and rights holders, and benefits music fans who engage more easily than ever with lyrics that inspire them," said LyricFind team in a blog post.
This association implies that now clients won't be required to open outside applications or sites for perusing the lyrics of a melody and can do the query in search result itself. Ballantyne told Billboard, "It should be a significant revenue stream. I can't get into the rates, but we expect it to be millions of dollars generated for publishers and songwriters as a result of this. It's all based on usage. Royalties are paid based on the number of times a lyric is viewed. The more it's viewed, the more publishers get paid."
