We’ve heard a lot of stories about artists and labels complaining about AI-generated music recently. It’s about time we had some good news AI stories. Well, while Drake might not like hearing himself re-voicing tracks by other artists, Liam Gallagher thinks he sounds “mega” on a new – and entirely fake – Oasis album purporting to be a lost recording from the late 90s.

Billed as being by AIsis, ‘The Lost Tapes Vol 1’ is the creation of musician Bobby Geraghty. It’s actually a collection of songs written and recorded by his former band Breezer. He then trained an AI on Liam Gallagher’s voice and replaced his own vocals with new ones created by the AI technology. Aside from the fact that it often sounds like Gallagher is singing with a mouth full of wool, it’s pretty convincing.

Asked for his opinion of the album by a fan on Twitter, Gallagher replied: “Mad as fuck. I sound mega”.

He told another that “it’s better than all the other snizzle out there”.

So, it seems there’s one big name artist sold on the AI revolution. He’ll no doubt be glad to hear thatthere’s a second volume of AIsis tracks ready to go.
