Siri does vocals on The Flaming Lips' new track
Siri can do a lot of things and answer a lot of questions, but now it can add vocals to the list of accomplishments. The Flaming Lips has used Apple's personal assistant in its new "sound construction" called "Now I Understand". 

"Sound construction" is a better term, because it isn't exactly a song, especially since Siri can't sing. Luckily, Erykah Badu helps out with some proper singing on the track. The basic idea is that Siri doesn't understand "the moon, the stars and the sun", but Ms. Badu helps Siri to learn and understand.

We doubt that Siri has a big career in music, but we'd be surprised if Siri didn't get auto-tuned a bit after this. If you want to give a listen, the track will be available on SoundCloud for just one week.

Terrible phone, terrible band, terrible song.

The cease and desist letter from Apple is already in the mail.

Can't find the exact to words on how to comment. It's a bit confusing why they should create a "sound construction" like this. Is this just to ride Siri's fame? Nonetheless, the track is really stange, creepy, and (oftentimes) annoying, or maybe I'm not just used to listening such tracks. But in order for me to understand, I tried to hear the track again like how I look at an abstract painting.
