How to Download Spotify Albums to MP3

"I like organizing my music by albums. How can I download albums from Spotify to my computer as local files? If possible, I’d like to save them as MP3 files."

Spotify is the king in the music streaming world by the number of subscribers. You just need to register to access its large collection of music, with more than 100 million songs. It's a freemium service. Spotify free users are restricted to listening to ad-supported Spotify songs with lower sound quality online, while Spotify Premium users can enjoy uninterrupted Spotify music and download Spotify songs for offline listening.

The only problem is that you can’t save Spotify songs as local files, whether you are a Spotify Free user or a Spotify Premium subscriber, as the music files you downloaded with Spotify are in encoded OGG format. If you’d like to download Spotify songs, albums, or playlists to your computer for safekeeping, the easiest way is to convert them to MP3 format.
