Lyrics annotation website Genius has partnered with music streaming service Spotify to provide listeners with a brand new experience. With the introduction of the partnership also comes a brand new product they’re calling Fact Track.

Much like what users have come to expect from the lyrics site, Fact Track gives listeners access to facts about whatever songs they’re streaming on Spotify. While it doesn’t use the pop-up window style found normally on Genius, it does provide ongoing pertinent information.

More from Genius:

For this integration we stripped Genius down to its essence with a new product we call the Fact Track. It’s like a soundtrack… but with more facts! Also, it sounds like “FAQ Track,” which makes sense because it answers all your FAQs about a song.

Fact Tracks play along with the music, which limits the amount of information we can show, but also allows us to give you the facts unfiltered and straight into your soul windows. No tapping, no clicking, just LEAN BACK:

Starting today, Genius-powered tracks are live on a brand-new Genius x Spotify playlist, Behind the Lyrics: Hip-Hop. There are also three artist-driven playlists featuring our launch artists Pusha T, Tinashe, and Diplo! (Keep your eyes peeled for more playlists—a pop one is premiering VERY soon…)

So far, only iPhone users can experience Fast Track in its mobile form but you can still use the program on your desktops or laptops. Check out the videos below to see how the new product works.
