With the SoundCloud embed block for WordPress, you can add an album, playlist or track to your post or page. Embedding SoundCloud content in Gutenberg gives you a lot of options for how the block looks and functions. Otherwise, if you simply copy and paste the SoundCloud link into the classic editor, you may be able to showcase music, but your options will be seriously limited when it comes to customizations and page design.
In this article, we’re going to walk you through how to embed a SoundCloud album, playlist or track on a WordPress post or page. We’ll also cover best practices, FAQs and tips that you should know.
Before we get going, do note that while you don’t need a SoundCloud account to embed content from the service, you will need to choose public tracks – private tracks cannot be embedded. Also, you must be using the Gutenberg block editor to add the SoundCloud embed block. (We’ll cover a couple of alternatives, though.)
