It's just not how bands sell and promote themselves these days.
and it's just how Spotify and the like have ruined/changed how the 'singles' chart works now, ie Ed Sheeran having 9 songs in the Top 10 last year. A song can be popular on streaming services and be in the singles charts alongside promoted 'official' singles. What a mess.
