Album Pages

Use Album Pages to add an album of audio files to your website.

Album Pages are only available in version 7.0. To add audio for visitors to listen to in version 7.1, use Audio Blocks or SoundCloud Blocks.
Note: Album Pages are built primarily for music albums and aren't designed for podcasts. To set up a podcast with an RSS feed, create a Blog Page with Audio Blocks. Visit our podcasting guide to learn more.
Note: Album Pages aren't linked to Commerce. To sell music through Squarespace, use our Commerce platform and add digital products to a Products Page.

  • Page Description - In the Basic tab, this description will be indexed by search engines and can help improve SEO. For more help, visit Adding search engine and page descriptions.
  • Banner/Thumbnail Image - In the Media tab, you can add the same image as your album art or use another image. Depending on your template, it may be used as a banner image. For more help, visit Adding thumbnail images.
  • Manage Tags/Categories - In the Advanced tab, you can remove or rename tags and categories for the Album Page.
  • To learn more about your Album Page's settings, visit Page Settings.

Style the Album Page

To customize your Album Page's fonts and buttons, click Design in the Home Menu, then click Site Styles.

  • Click any area of the page in the preview to display only the style tweaks available for that area and hide the rest.
  • If you have multiple Album Pages, style changes will apply to all of them to create a consistent look.
  • Your template may support additional features, such as banner images or page headers, that affect how the Album Page looks.

All templates have the same Album Page style tweak options:

  • Album Text Color - Set the color of the track names and lengths
  • Hide Album Share Link - Hide or display the Share button

The artist name and album description text follow your site's body font style. The album title follows the Heading 1 font. The names of these tweaks vary by template.

For most templates, the Share button follows either the body text or body links style. In the Skye family, the Label Color tweak changes the color of the Share button.
