Would it be difficult to add a fade in/out effect for the titles across the artwork?
My suggestion is to fade in the titles when the artwork is touched (gestured).
Swipe Up (on artwork) gesture can be used to show the titles when they are hidden because it has no real function.
The titles would fade out after 2 or 3 seconds being idle.
You could add it as an option within the skin called "title fading".
