SoundHound Inc. and Grand Marnier have partnered to bring the DNA of Music to SoundHound users.

The DNA of Music is a custom program that delivers to users a breakdown of songs that are covers, remixes, or that contain samples from other tunes. For example, users who SoundHound Daft Punk's Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger are served a Grand Marnier ad, as well as an integrated row that allows them to discover not only the samples that are incorporated in the song (Edwin Birdsong's "Cola Bottle Baby"), but also those songs that sample the Daft Punk track itself, such as Kanye West's Stronger, and Diplo's Work is Never Over. The DNA of Music program is powered by WhoSampled, the world's largest database of sample-based music, cover songs and remixes.

Grand Marnier instilled its #blendout campaign through SoundHound's robust music search and discovery platform, with the goal to inspire users to become a master of remarkable combinations. Grand Marnier offers engaging content as part of its The Art of Blends Music Edition program, featuring Grand Marnier-branded charts to help users discover the anatomy of the most sampled, covered and remixed songs, and the artists behind them.

We are excited to be working with Grand Marnier in such a unique and beautifully executed integration, said Cheryl Lucanegro, vice president, advertising strategy and sales, SoundHound. Through this highly engaging experience for music fans, we are fulfilling Grand Marnier's philosophy to challenge convention, create new possibilities and shake up the status quo, all while inspiring our users through custom music discovery, unrivaled by any other platform.

SoundHound is an ideal partner for Grand Marnier's new Blend Out campaign. They, like our brand, embody the spirit of blending and the joy it can bring, said R. Scott Green, Senior Vice President Sales & Marketing, Marnier Lapostolle.

Grand Marnier's DNA of Music, planned out of Mobext, a Havas Media brand, will be available to users through the end of February 2015, with additional custom music charts highlighting the blending of different music genres to come.

SoundHound is based in Santa Clara, Calif., with offices in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Toronto, New York and Boston.
