Wherever you go, your music follows you.

Embedding via the WordPress Block Editor

The easiest way is to copy and paste a Spotify song or playlist URL directly into a new line in the Block Editor. The URL will automatically convert to an embedded Spotify song/playlist that people can listen to on your site.

Alternatively, you can add the Spotify block as explained below:
