How to Burn Spotify Music to CD

Learn how to download songs from Spotify and burn Spotify music to a CD.

CDs are used as a medium of storing data almost permanently. They are small & portable and cheap to produce. It’s a pity that today is a streaming world with a quickly diminishing CD. If you are a frequent CD user, we advise you to learn to burn CDs by yourself.

Currently, most of us access music by subscribing to a music streaming service, among which, Spotify is one of the most popular ones. Spotify provides users with over 82 million tracks, enough large music library to choose songs from. If you are a Premium subscriber, you can stream Spotify songs at 320kbps. Also, you are allowed to download music from Spotify for offline playback.

Nevertheless, the downloaded Spotify songs are cache files that can’t be copied or exported for use on any other device. Thus, before you can burn Spotify music to a CD, you need to convert Spotify music to a more popular format like MP3.
