An American band from Michigan named Vulfpeck released their latest album Sleepify last March. The interesting thing is that the album had no audio. All their songs were 30 seconds long and had no sound whatsoever.
Why does a band release a blank record? It turns out that it was an ingenious strategy to make money by paying royalties through Spotify: The band asked their fans to stop playing the album continuously at night, so that Spotify would consider it as a played song (for that for 30 seconds) and pay them the corresponding royalties.
via Spotify removes album without audio that made a band $ 20,000 worth of $ 20,000 – FayerWayer.
