The nameless song is about NFT, which is selling… as NFT.
Hail our new tech overlord, Elon Musk! The Tesla founder and former CEO has officially changed the title of his work to ‘Technoking of Tesla’, perhaps a nod to the new techno track he released on Twitter yesterday (March 15).
The billionaire announced that he is selling the unnamed track as an NFT, or non-fungible token, along with a music video containing cryptic words like ‘Vanity Trophy’, ‘HODL’ and ‘Computers Never Sleep’. His partner Grimes sold his artwork as an NFT for $6 million earlier this month.
Musk has not only crowned himself the king of his electric car kingdom, but has also renamed Tesla CFO Zach Kirkhorn’s position the “Master of Coin.” The new title is presumably a reference to the company’s $1.5bn (£1.1bn) Bitcoin purchase this year, although this is speculation.
“Effective March 15, 2021, the titles of Elon Musk and Zach Kirkhorn have changed to Technoking of Tesla and Master of Coin, respectively,” the electric car company said in a new regulatory filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
The new song isn’t Musk’s first roundup. Last year, he released an EDM track, “Don’t Doubt ur Vibe” on his own record label, Emo G Records (lol). He is also currently developing a chip that transmits music directly to your brain. We leave you to join the dots.
