Background and recording
Artificial Intelligence was originally titled Black Rose. The title and some changes to the tracks delayed the album being released for five weeks.
Following the chaotic period during which the album (and the previous two) were recorded, John and Risé's daughter Eden was born, which promptly caused Cale to kick his addictions to alcohol and cocaine, and to temporarily abandon rock/pop records and band performances in favor of other projects (until 1996's Walking on Locusts).
