Last month, we told you about Vulfpeck's ironic Spotify record, Sleepify, which was completely silent and designed to raise money for the funk band's tour. Well, Spotify finally got around to responding to the band's attempted scam. They're not happy about it!
Vulfpeck received an email asking them to take down their Sleepify record. The band's response comes in the form of another record, appropriately titled, Official Statement. Besides including a brief summary of the Spotify email and their feelings about it, there's also a brief "#Reflect" track that's just silence, and a track that's just a cheesy piano riff.
As of publication time, Sleepify remains live on the streaming music service. [On the Media]
It appears that Spotify has taken the record.
