Vulfpeck are prepping their 2020 studio album, The Joy Of Music, The Job Of Real Estate. The band continues their inventive ways by auctioning off the 10th track on the LP via eBay.

The band’s mastermind Jack Stratton explained how it works in a video on YouTube. “We are selling track 10 on the upcoming Vulfpeck album on eBay,” Stratton said. “This isn’t like the Wu-Tang thing (the band sold the only existing copy of Once Upon a Time in Shaolin for $2 million in 2015). The highest bidder will get naming rights, two minutes and 30 seconds on the album.”

“Could be a graduation thing, a birthday, a marriage proposal, a law firm ad,” Jack stated of the options. “Apple could buy it. Your band could buy it and put your song on an Vulfpeck album. This is a joyous expression. This is prime auditory real estate,” Stratton added after explaining he had to make the move after shorting Spotify stock.

Watch Jack Stratton’s “press conference” below:
