A new song by the late great Nirvana frontman KURT COBAIN?
Not written by him? Yep, and it feels otherworldly and creepy.
The song titled DROWNED IN THE SUN was written with AI (Artificial Intelligence)
software. But also new songs by the late Amy Winehouse and other deceased artists
(all at the age of 27) were made that way.
Toronto organisation Over The Bridge is the initiator of the project – focusing on the importance of mental health support – and created a compilation of new songs in the
style of musicians who died at the age of 27 like Cobain who passed away 27 years ago, early April. What about the legality? Royalties? His widow Courtney Love and daughter Frances? And the fans? Many of them reacted furiously on social media.
The big question: where will it all end?
And the weirdest thing is that it’s a top song.
