Donation to charity if we can hear it? We're sure others would give a $ or two as well. 😀 pic.twitter.com/RmcdhIsLGz

Recently, it was noted that Blur’s ‘Song 2’ is an ode to Kurt Cobain. While the song never made too much sense in that respect, perhaps it will when we hear Kurt Cobain take the reigns of the vocal position while doing a slight Britpop impression, thanks to AI.
AI technology has advanced to the point where it is now possible to create new music using the voices and styles of dead artists. From Tupac to Amy Winehouse, to Kurt Cobain, Liam Gallagher, and even the legendary composer Beethoven, AI algorithms can now recreate the unique sound and style of these artists, effectively resurrecting them for new music releases.
While some see this as an exciting new era of music, others have raised concerns about the ethics of using a deceased artist’s likeness in this way. Some questions are being asked with increasing frequency as more and more dead artists are being “revived” through AI technology.
On the other hand, supporters of this trend argue that it allows for new generations of fans to experience the music of artists who have long passed away. It also opens up possibilities for collaboration between artists who would never have had the chance to work together in their lifetimes.
As AI technology continues to evolve, it is clear that this is a trend that is here to stay. The question now is whether we can strike a balance between honoring an artist’s legacy and embracing the possibilities of new technology. The world of music is always changing, and it will be fascinating to see how this trend evolves in the years to come.
