Outspoken as ever, Liam Gallagher gave Oasis’s AI revival his mark of approval

Liam Gallagher thinks he sounds mega in a new Oasis song even though he didnt actually sing in it.

Liam Gallagher says he sounds "mega", even though he did not sing on the new Oasis track.

Michael Imperioli on deadlines

The British rock band Breezer created the lyrics and instrumentation, but the lead vocals were replaced by "AISIS". They used generative artificial intelligence to mimic Liam Gallagher's voice.

Gallagher tweeted, "it's much better than the other snizzles out there."

Not only the former Oasis singer is applauding this effort. Many nostalgic fans also cheered on the effort. "Impressive would be an understatement. I'd have thought these were real Oasis lost songs if I hadn't known. YouTube user: "I would love to hear the second side!"

Rumors about Oasis continue to circulate, but they are still just rumors. AISIS will feel the void until then. AISIS has already prepared a second batch of songs for the fans.

Gallagher's unambiguous endorsement of AI-generated artwork is contrary to his album's artistic merit. The majority of creatives, whether they are singer-songwriters, photographers or designers, have yet to decide where the line is between artistic expression and infringement on copyright. Most of them reject it, claiming that it is akin piracy.

This week, an AI-generated fake Drake Ft. AI expert Roberto Nickson said that when The Weeknd's track became viral, it was a "modern Napster moment." He was referring to a website which started as peer-to-peer sharing of music without regard for copyright.

Before April 4, (it is not known exactly when), a user posting under the pseudonym Ghostwriter977 releases "Heart on My Sleeve". This was first on TikTok. The song sounds like an exchange between Drake and The Weeknd regarding the former's ex-girlfriend actor Selena Gomez.

The song "Heart On My Sleeve", which was released on April 4, is now available via Spotify and YouTube.

Universal Music Group has asked streaming platforms on April 13 to stop AI scraping of their songs' lyrics and melodies.

On April 14, Drake posts "This is the final straw" in an Instagram story, with a video clip that refers to an AI-generated cover he did of Bronx rapper Ice Spice rapping "Munch". On the same weekend, "Heart on My Sleeve", a song by Bronx rapper Ice Spice, goes viral. The video has been viewed more than 15,000,000 times on TikTok and thousands of times on other platforms.

Apple Music and Spotify remove the track on April 17, following a complaint by Universal Music Group, which represents the two Toronto-born musicians.

YouTube, Amazon SoundCloud, Tidal Deezer and TikTok have all taken down the song on April 18. It's mostly a game of "whack-a mole" as new versions keep appearing on YouTube.

The training of generative artificial intelligence using the music of our artists (which is both a breach to our agreements and a copyright violation) as well the availability of infringing material created with generative artificial intelligence on DSPs begs the questions of which side of the history stakeholders in the music industry want to be on. On the side for artists, fans, and human creativity, or on that of fraud, deep fakes and denying artists the due compensation.

AISIS – The Lost Tapes Vol.1 (In the Style of Oasis/Liam Gallagher- AI Mixtape/Album).

Gallagher won the 2010 XFM Listener's Choice Award for best frontman. He easily beat Queen's Freddie Mercury by receiving twice as many votes.

The makers of AISIS' song stated in a Reddit posting, "We were bored waiting for Oasis reforming, so we got a Liam Gallagher-like AI (inspired by JekSpek’s youtube AI video which is awesome, btw), to step in and assist on some tunes that we wrote during lockdown for a brief lived but much loved Breezer.

Other people have brought musicians back from the dead. Over the Bridge released a music album called Lost Tapes of the 27 Club, which was aimed at the mental health community. The album featured AI-generated tracks by the "27 Club", which included iconic artists such as Amy Winehouse and Jim Morrison. Kurt Cobain also died at 27.

These may not be the best intentions. They could only serve AI researchers and the audience. It's not black and white for the celebrities, their families or even themselves.

The family of Michael Schumacher - who hasn't appeared in public since his brain damage following a 2013 skiing accident - is planning legal action against the German magazine Die Aktuelle, which published an AI generated interview with the Formula One icon. It's an intrusive action, despite the tech marvel.

Spotify and Apple Music have removed a fake song created by AI featuring Drake and The Weeknd.

Here is the music that AI has created.
