Band tricks Spotify by streaming silent tracks for cash


Whenever you listen to a song on Spotify, the artist gets paid a princely sum of $0.0007, not really enough to feed the family is it? However, if you have a devoted fanbase who played your song all night, each fan could rack up around $4 for the band.

This is where an idea by Vulfpeck, who created their new album Sleepify specifically to game the system and earn them enough to fund their forthcoming tour. The album consists of 11 x 32-second-long tracks of silence, perfect for all night rave whilst you sleep.
