What was once a dream has now become reality for OneRepublic. The pop group released their new collaborative track with Peter Gabriel "A.I" -- which oddly enough was inspired by the 2001 movie of the same name. The single arrived Monday (Oct. 3), just days ahead of their fourth studio album Oh My My, slated to be released Friday.

The 2001 movie A.I. centers on a young robotic boy who wants to attain human qualities such as the ability to feel love. "I just want your love automatic, if artificial love makes sense," OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder croons over the dark, synthy beat. The funky bassline meets Peter Gabriel's futuristic vocals leading into Gabriel's haunting outro.
