How do I cite audio sources in APA Style (Songs, Albums, Podcasts, etc.)?

Answer

Single Song or Track

Recording Artist Last Name, First Initial. (Year of release). Title of song [Song]. On Title of Album [Album]. Record Label. 


Swift, T. (2022). You’re On Your Own, Kid [Song]. On Midnights [Album]. Republic Records.


In-Text Citation: (Swift, 2022). Or Swift … (2022). 

 

Note: If the song does not have an associated album, simply omit the section with the album.

Note: It is not necessary to specify how you listened to a song (Spotify, Pandora, CD, etc.). 

 

Music Album

Recording Artist Last Name, First Initial. (Year of release). Title of Album [Album]. Record Label.
 

Swift, T. (2022). Midnights [Album]. Republic Records.
 

In-Text Citation: (Swift, 2022). Or Taylor Swift … (2022).

 

Note: If you are referencing a re-recorded version, list that album title in brackets following the name of the album.

Note: It is not necessary to specify how you listened to an album (Spotify, Pandora, CD, etc.).
