Those lyrics probably won't be on the lips of many carolers this Christmas, but as far as songs about St. Nick and authoritarianism go, they're pretty catchy. For Automated Christmas Joy, a four-track album, indie-punk singer songwriter Evan Greer tapped the cutting-edge new AI chatbot ChatGPT to write lyrics, then composed the music and recorded the resulting tunes.

"There are some really funny moments where you can see the AI totally failing and succeeding at the same time," Greer said in a description of the project, citing the "Santa's mighty sack" line. "It was also pretty dystopian and weird how when I asked it to write a song about Christmas at the gay bar, the AI clearly returned results informed by the recent wave of violence against LGBTQ+ people."

The experiment comes as artificial intelligence generates ever more refined visual art, writes movie scripts and draws beautiful comics series. But while AI presents intriguing creative possibilities, it also raises ethical and copyright concerns among artists and even lawyers.
