British metal band While She Sleeps has come up with a T-shirt with a message that points a finger at Spotify over low royalty payments.

The text reads:

One T-shirt is the equivalent to 5000 streams on Spotify. 76% of all music in 2019 is streamed and not bought physically or digitally. Band merchandise is the most direct way of supporting an artist.

On Twitter, While She Sleeps says the latest item of apparel is about how fans can support music.

“Not just our band and our music – this is aimed at every working band trying to make music and get it out there. We are launching a free-to-use design to highlight the realities of being a band today.”
