The album was made by UK band Breezer, who imagined what it would sound like if Oasis were to reform and release a new album in 2023. It featured Breezer’s original tracks – written throughout 2021 – with the singer’s vocals replaced by an AI-generated version of Gallagher’s.
Less than a week since debuting online, the album – cleverly named ‘AISIS’ – has already gathered tens of thousands of views, kickstarted an online debate, and had an overwhelmingly positive response from many Oasis fans
Even more surprising, however, is that former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher enjoyed the project, and has taken to social media to praise the indie band for making something “better” than a lot of other releases.
The response was prompted when a fan asked the singer if he had “listened to the AISIS album yet” on Twitter earlier today (April 19). To this, Gallagher responded saying that he had only listened to the album in part, but was still impressed.
“Not the album heard a tune,” he explained. “It’s better than all the other snizzle out there.”
He then told another follower than he found the project “Mad as fuck” and that “I sound mega”.
According to the YouTube description, Breezer created the Oasis-inspired project after they became fed up with waiting for the iconic Brit-pop band to reform.
“AISIS is an alternate reality concept album where the band’s 95-97 line-up continued to write music, or perhaps all got together years later to write a record akin to the first 3 albums,” they wrote.
“We’re bored of waiting for Oasis to reform, so we’ve got an AI modelled Liam Gallagher (inspired by @JekSpek) to step in and help out. It seemed to be a perfect match, and we love how some of these have turned out.”
At time of writing, the album has become a hit among fans, with 1,700 thumbs up versus just 44 thumbs down. Fans have also taken to the comment section to share their praise of the album: “I am a huge Oasis fan right from 1994 and this is like stepping into an alternate dimension – blown away – Amazing,” one user commented.
Another added: “This is incredible. Amazing songwriting and to me it sounds like a modern-day Oasis. Fantastic production as well. Loved the reference at the end of Bittersweet.”
While fans have rejoiced at the new AI-developed album, the possibility of the band reforming is one that still hangs in the balance.
