Just like creating an album, it takes a lot of creativity and time to perfect your band’s website. One of the most important parts is, of course, your music.
Your music is likely on multiple platforms from SoundCloud to BandCamp to Spotify. In this post we’ll focus on how to embed a Spotify playlist to your website.
Adding a Spotify playlist without code
With some websites, you can just paste in a link to the Spotify track or playlist you want, instead of copying code. These steps work with Jimdo:
- Go to the Spotify music you’d like to share and click on the icon with the three dots “…”
- Select Share > Copy Link. The link is now copied to your computer clipboard.
- Now back on your web page, click the (+) sign and add a Music Block.
- Click on the musical note button in your new Music Block and paste in the link from Spotify.
- Press the green check mark to save.
Tip: These steps work with Spotify and iTunes playlists. You can grab the URL for a playlist or for an individual song.

What if your music is not on Spotify?
Spotify is big, but it’s not the only music platform out there. Your music might be on Bandcamp or SoundCloud. Or you might be sharing it on TikTok or Instagram. If so, have a look at Jimdo’s Smart Apps. Smart Apps let you show content on your website from a long list of other online platforms. Curious? Read more about Smart Apps.
What does copy embed code mean?
“Copy embed code” means to take a piece of HTML code and put it on your own website. This used to be necessary if you wanted to share content from an external platform on your website. The external platform would give you some customized code to paste into your website.
At Jimdo, we want to make building websites easy, so you don’t need to work with code. When you want to share content from an external platform on your Jimdo site, all you need to do is copy and paste the URL. We then take care of the code behind the scenes.
Where to embed a Spotify playlist on your website
You should have a page of your website dedicated to sharing your band’s music. Most band websites simply call this page “Music.” You don’t have to put your music right on your homepage, but if you are promoting a new single or have a nice video of your band performing it can be a nice touch to add it there.
