Grimes Releases Ode to the Panopticon



By Logan McRay


Canadian singer Grimes has released her first song in three years and it’s a plea for artificial intelligence to subjugate humans worldwide.


According to Hollywood Life:


“‘We Appreciate Power’ is written from the perspective of a Pro-A.I. Girl Group Propaganda machine who use song, dance, sex and fashion to spread goodwill towards Artificial Intelligence (it’s coming whether you want it or not),” a press release or the song read. “Simply by listening to this song, the future General AI overloads will see that you’ve supported their message and be less likely to delete your offspring.”


The accompanying lyric video encourages the listener to back up their thoughts on a hard drive and wear make-up. It’s unknown if the NSA and Interpol will split production royalties.
