How to create a Spotify Pre-Save (for FREE) 20 Jun 2019 What is a pre-save link? A link that artists can give to their followers to allow them to save the song in Spotify before release date. This doesn’t mean that they have access to the song before release date, it simply means, come release day the song will be automatically saved in your Spotify library. Why is it important?
