Even though Spotify claims to offer added value, especially for independent artists, and to do everything they can to give them more visibility, everyone knows that this is nothing but lazy talk. But that’s not what it’s supposed to be about today.
It’s about the fact that Spotify is also taking action against music that helps people and their health. White noise music has proven positive effects on mental health. This type of music has a calming effect.
These positive properties benefit everyone who uses this music. Our project ‘Sleepy Polar Bear’ shows us this above all. We even worked with doctors, therapists and midwives here and received consistently positive feedback.
People use ‘Sleepy Polar Bear’ for their babies & children to create a bedtime routine.
To calm them down and so that they get a better night’s sleep.
Parents also use it to relax and rest after a long, tiring day.
Many people gave feedback that their sleep disorders were reduced or even disappeared. People with anxiety disorders also found ‘Sleepy Polar Bear’ to have a special effect and said this music would help immensely.
Now Spotify has started to remove precisely this type of music, which helps millions of people worldwide, from its product range. How come?
Exactly because of money! Spotify loses money through music that helps people. According to various reports, an amount in the double-digit range. But no one talks about how much money Mr. Ek and other high-ranking executives are raking into their own pockets and are unwilling to cut their pay to make more profits. Instead, you put money before health!

Help us in the fight against injustice and for health!
