So before you try to embed a .mp3 file to your WordPress post, first install and activate the audio player plugin. You can install the audio player plugin by downloading it on your computer and uploading it to wp-content/plugins folder via FTP.
You can also simply search for Audio Player in the Plugins > Add New inside your WordPress dashboard and install it automatically from there.
Once you have installed the audio player plugin, you are ready to add an audio file or a .mp3 file to any post or page in WordPress.
Just upload the audio or .mp3 file using the media uploader. Then click on the ‘audio player’ button, and then click on ‘insert into post’ button.
