I'm looking for a Android music player app that will read the artist and track name out-loud.

I'm a avid amateur DJ and to make best use of my time I listen to new music while I'm at my day job, in the form of downloaded mp3s stored locally on my phone. My day job is such that I can't look at my phone every time a new song comes on to see what the artist and track name is. I want to find an Android-based player that will use text-to-speech to read out the artist and track names.
Currently I start a playlist of newly downloaded tunes then stick my phone in my hat for 2 hours at a time, only looking at it during breaks. Using this method for the past 2 months I have become auditorily familiar with a lot of new tracks, but when I get to the mixing decks I have no idea what the track names are to go with the sounds I've got in my head. If I had a music player that could announce the artist + track name at the start and/or end of each tune I would really get a lot of traction with this method.
