How to Get Free Music Downloaded on Computer

As copyright and intellectual property protection is getting more and more attention, it's becoming much more difficult for us to find a reliable source to download free music on a computer now. Since the late-2000s, the trend in media consumption has changed from digital downloads to online streaming services, featuring with DRM, short for Digital Rights Management, a set of access control technologies stopping users from copying and distributing digital contents.

Among the streaming music services, Spotify, with 180 million monthly active users, is the most popular one. It offers three types of subscriptions – Spotify Free, Spotify Premium ($9.99 per month) and Spotify Family ($14.99 per month). Spotify Free users are enabled to listen to songs on demand, discover new music, play and share music, playlist, album and more, while Spotify offline listening mode and some other features are limited to paid subscribers.
