Band Makes $21K From Silent Album

(TeamRock Radio) US band Vulfpeck managed to squeeze $21,000 out of Spotify streaming royalties - from an album of complete silence, which they described as as "the most silent album ever recorded."

They uploaded the ten-track release Sleepify and asked fans to keep it on repeat while they slept, in order to fund their upcoming tour. In return, tickets to every show would be free.

They managed to raise $19,655.56 from over 5.5million playbacks, with each track generating around three-tenths of a cent per play. They also became entitled to a copyright payment of around $1100. more on this story
