An AI-generated Oasis album has gone viral on social media. Now Liam Gallagher shared his thoughts on ‘AISIS.’
Described as an ‘alternative reality concept album’ the release imagines another Oasis album featuring the band’s 1995 lineup. It’s an eight-track release called The Lost Tapes Volume One, released under the name AIsis. The music and lyrics are written by a real-life band called Breezer, but Liam Gallagher’s AI-generated voice is singing them.
On April 19, the existence of the AIsis created album was brought to Liam Gallagher’s attention. “Not the album heard a tune it’s better than all the other snizzle out there,” the frontman replied. In another tweet, he adds the song is “mad as f**k” and that he “sounds mega.”
So who created AIsis and why? Breezer says the concept was based on the idea of the band’s ’95-’97 lineup continuing to wite music akin to the first three albums.
“We’re bored of waiting for Oasis to reform, so we’ve got an AI modelled Liam Gallagher to step in and help out on some tunes that were written during lockdown 2021 for a short-lived, but much-loved band called Breezer,” the group adds. The group says they have another group of Oasis-inspired songs ready to go—but they haven’t been released yet.
Liam Gallagher doesn’t seem to be too fazed by the AI release, but elsewhere its left artists scrambling. DJ Dave Guetta detailed the possibilities when he asked AI to write a verse about Eminem rapping about electronic dance music. He then used an AI to train a voice to rap the verse, using the song during a live set. Meanwhile, Drake says ‘this is the last straw’ as several AI versions of him rapping lyrics have popped up in recent months.
AI music generation still requires human creativity and input for a worthy result. As mentioned, a band wrote the music and lyrics you can hear in the AIsis album—they just employed an AI model trained on Liam Gallagher’s voice to help them sing. That’s exactly what went into creating the Drake and The Weeknd AI collaboration “Heart on My Sleeve.“
