While you’re waiting for The Strokes to get a studio session in, it might be worth your time to check out this new project from tech collective Botnik. The tech and comedy group have released a song based on The Strokes’ lyrics – written with the help of AI – as part of their mathematically perfect pop album The Songularity.
The lyrics of “I Don’t Want To Be There” were co-written by algorithms, and recorded in Chicago by a team of artists, writers and developers. And let’s be honest – it really does sound like a song from the band. As funny as this may sound, there is a bigger purpose here. The CEO Jamie Brew said in an interview: “I expect we’ll continue to see AI tech that tries to help people do things as fast as they can while making the fewest possible decisions.”
