    Depending on what music player you're using, you may be able to monitor for a change to the %MTRACK variable (you can find details about that variable at Tasker: Variables).

    With that in mind, something like this may work.
    Context
    Event > Variable Set: %MTRACK

    Action
    Display > Turn On
    Note: depending on your device/OS you may need to use a third-party plugin like Secure Settings.

    I've managed to get it running on with media utilities.
    But I'll experiment with the variable. I did try but couldn't get it to work
