Vulfpeck are selling track 10 from their upcoming album The Joy of Music, The Job of Real Estate to the highest bidder on eBay.
Over the weekend, Vulfpeck's Jack Stratton shared an interesting video on social media. The video, uploaded to YouTube, is like a quick sales pitch for people to buy track 10 from the band's upcoming album The Joy of Music, The Job of Real Estate.
The video, titled "vulf press conference NOW", sees Stratton explain his wins and losses on Spotify stocks, which has resulted in him auctioning off the track from their new album to recoup lost funds.
Track 10 from Vulfpeck's new LP is currently listed on eBay, and the highest bidder will get naming rights to the track and two-and-a-half-minutes on the LP. At the time of writing this article, the current highest bid is $50,100.00.
Stretton says in the video, "Could be a graduation thing, a birthday, a marriage proposal, a law firm ad. Apple could buy it. Your band could buy it and put your song on a Vulfpeck album. This is joyous expression. This is prime auditory real estate. Past track 10's have included Louis Cole, Cory Wong, Bootsy Collins, Mushy Krongold. … I goofed, and I goofed hard. No artist should have to sell ad space on their record. But track 10 of Vulfpeck’s 2020 release, The Joy of Music, The Job of Real Estate, has been foreclosed."
On eBay, the product description reads, "The Seller grants to the Buyer the naming rights to Track 10. The Buyer will provide the Seller with the track's title and the track's recording data within 30 days of purchase/closing. The Seller reserves the right to not approve any title and/or recording the Seller deems obscene, hateful, or just plain creepy."
