Grimes Releases AI-Powered Lullaby for Algorithmic Mood Music Startup

    Grimes has collaborated with algorithm-based mood music startup Endel for a new project called AI Lullaby, which is designed to help “improve both sleep and wellness in children and adults.” According to Endel, the project was inspired by the musician becoming a new mom and wanting to make a collection of lullaby music for herself and X Æ A-XII Musk, her five-month old son with Elon Musk.

    “I think, if approached properly, AI has the ability to radically fix our world,” Grimes said in a statement. “I appreciate Endel because they represent the growing trend of humane technology. I hope that the fields of AI safety, research, philosophy, as well as humane AI and spiritual technology, etc. can grow a lot in the coming years. We’ll need it!”

    Featuring Grimes’ original music and vocals, the app will be available on the Endel iOS app until December 23rd, with a release on Android and Amazon Alexa to follow later this year. A portion of the proceeds from the project will be donated to the nonprofits A.I. for Everyone and the Naked Heart Foundation.

    Earlier this year, Grimes released her most recent album Miss Anthropocene.
