How To Change Your SoundCloud Playlist To An Album

You can now create ALBUMS on SoundCloud

SoundCloud is a global online audio distribution platform based in Berlin, Germany, that enables its users to upload, record, promote, and share their originally-created sounds. It was founded by Alexander Ljung and Eric Wahlforss who are also the chief executive officers

SoundCloud is now one of the world’s leading social sound platforms and when SoundCloud started, it was built around artists sharing music one track at a time. Then they added playlists (and if you wanted to share an “album” you’d have to build it as a playlist). Now, finally, they’ve added an ALBUM option.

SoundCloud has a lot of things going for it, as it’s the premier service for emerging artists to upload their work and connect with potential listeners without all the drama of record labels. You can even listen to SoundCloud music on your desktop if you’re a power user.

If you’ve already created a playlist to represent your album, it’s pretty simple to switch it to the album designation:

  1. log into your SoundCloud account.
  2. click to edit the playlist.
  3. select the playlist type as “album.”
  4. Provide a release date, if not listed already.
  5. Click to save your changes and you’re all set.
