Sting warns against AI songs – as he wins prestigious award
Sting becomes an Academy Fellow, the highest honour The Academy bestows, at the 2023 Ivors. It was presented at Grosvenor House in London on May 18.
Sting is the 23rd Fellow that the Academy has inducted in its 79-year history.
He joins greats such as Paul McCartney and Elton John.
Sting says musicians face “a battle” to defend their work against the rise of songs written by artificial intelligence. He says “The building blocks of music belong to us, to human beings”.
His comments come after a number of songs have used artificial intelligence to “clone” famous artists’ vocals.
