Band makes $20k off silent album on Spotify
May 9 , 2014
Spotify caught a band who planned on milking money with a silent album called "Sleepify."
The band called Vulfpeck, asked people to play the album on repeat while they slept at night and Gawker reports that the party came to an end a couple of weeks ago. Spotify said the the idea was funny but "violated their terms of contract," frontman Jack Stratton said. He mentioned that he assumes that Spotify will pay up and that he isn't worried about any consequences from what the band had done.
