How To Embed and Customise Spotify In Websites and Blogs

Embedding artists, albums and playlists from Spotify on your website is a great way to get people to hear your music, or music you want to promote. The good news is it’s really simple to do!


To embed a playlist, artist, album, or track here’s what you need to do:
  1. Find the release you want to embed on Spotify
  2. Right click the release and choose ‘Copy Embed Code’
  3. For a post go to your post editor – for embedding into your blog/website go to HTML editor view
  4. Paste the code in where you want it.
  5. Enjoy!

Spotify automatically creates an embedded player but you can customise the players look:

  • To change the size edit these: width=”xxx”¬†¬†height=”xxx

    <iframe src=”https://embed.spotify.com/?uri=spotify%3Aalbum%3A2DCzgO12HyMeGxoQlbtvQV” width=”150″ height=”200″ frameborder=”0″ allowtransparency=”true”></iframe>

  • Change the player to a white theme by adding “&theme=white” after the playlist/album/track/song code

    <iframe src=”https://embed.spotify.com/?uri=spotify%3Aalbum%3A2DCzgO12HyMeGxoQlbtvQV&theme=white“width=”300″ height=”380″ frameborder=”0″ allowtransparency=”true”></iframe>

  • To have a cover art view instead of the traditional player add “&view=coverart” after the playlist/album/track/song code

    <iframe src=”https://embed.spotify.com/?uri=spotify%3Aalbum%3A2DCzgO12HyMeGxoQlbtvQV&view=coverart” width=”300″ height=”380″ frameborder=”0″ allowtransparency=”true”></iframe

If the embed code doesn’t work on your site/blog you can often copy the release link directly to embed it. To do this right click and click “Copy song/artist/album/playlist link” and paste it in. This workaround often works if you’re using an older version of WordPress that doesn’t work with some embed codes.

    Hi!

    My company is working on creating a “bio” page on our ticket selling platform. We wanted to include a link to the artist song on there. In that case, can we still embed the Spotify link for free?

    Thank you!

    Hi Angela, This should still be working the same. Your link to your music should show up as “https://open.spotify.com/embed/track/” and so on rather than having ’embed’ at the start of the URL. Let me know if you’re still having trouble, it’s working for us following the examples in the article.
