<p>In yet more AI weirdness&mdash;which, we guess, is something we&#39;ll all be saying for the rest of our lives&mdash;here&#39;s a cover of "Jolene" by artist Holly Herndon&rsquo;s deepfake &ldquo;twin&rdquo; Holly+.</p>

From Pitchfork:

Holly Herndon has released a new cover of Dolly Parton’s classic ballad “Jolene,” recorded with artificial intelligence. The AI cover was created with Herndon’s deepfake “twin” Holly+, which allows other people to sing in the electronic composer’s voice. In this instance, a modified score of “Jolene,” comprised of new harmonies, was fed to Holly+ and then generated in Herndon’s voice. Accompanying the voice is Ryan Norris on guitar.

The track arrives with a new music video directed by the digital artist Sam Rolfes. For the visual, Rolfes used motion-capture technology to animate a 3D model of Herndon, which swivels around in a desk chair before standing up to sing. The entire performance takes place in a glitchy pastoral world filled with old trucks and farm houses.
