Our Lady Peace leader Raine Maida catches up with Kyle Meredith to talk about Spiritual Machines 2, the sequel to their 2000 album of the same name.
The Canadian songwriter first takes us back to the original and how they linked up with futurist Ray Kurzweil, who also guests on both Spiritual Machine releases. Maida discusses all of the predictions Kurzweil made that have come true, and Our Lady Peace’s plans to have him appear in their upcoming live shows holographically.
Maida then dives into how the new songs speak directly to the tracks from 20 years ago, the new predictions for the future, his thoughts on Simulation and Singularity, working with TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek and also having founding guitarist Mike Turner back to guest on the record.
