There’s a band called Vulfpeck that released a silent album called Sleepify and then asked their fans to play it whenever they could on repeat on Spotify especially while they were sleeping. The band earned around $20,000 in royalties before Spotify closed the loophole, and then went on a small tour where they gave away all the tickets for free as a thanks to their fans. They even picked the tour stops as the cities that streamed the album most.
