Transferring your Downloads

From the download page, you have the option to purchase the entire album, or individual tracks. 

When purchasing, you can select between MP3 (256kbps) and FLAC (1411kbps) Lossless for both albums and tracks.

After you select the quality, and select buy, you will be asked to either create a TIDAL account, or log in to your existing TIDAL account to complete the purchase. 

Download the files to a folder on your computer where you normally store music or a place where it is easy to find. 

 There are several ways of transfering your MP3, FLAC or ALAC files to your portable device or network streamer. 
 
iPod, iPhone and iTunes users
We recommend choosing ALAC (Apple lossless) or MP3 when you download files for iOS devices and iTunes. There is no native FLAC support in iTunes or on iOS devices. 
For how to transfer your files to your Apple device through iTunes, refer to iTunes Help under iPod user guides or iPhone user guide. 
 
 
Android users
We recommend choosing FLAC or MP3 when you download files for Android devices. There is not native ALAC support on Android. 
You can transfer files directly from the file system of your Windows PC or using Android File Transfer on Mac. Just drag and drop files to anywhere you prefer in the device’s file system. Refer to the manual of your device for specific instructions.
