Kurt Cobain Sings “Black Hole Sun” In AI Video


Years have passed since the tragic passing of late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain. His fans can now listen to new music from Kurt Cobain in an artificial sense. In a recent video, AI has recreated the grunge icon singing Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun.”

During the final days of Nirvana, Cobain had gone missing before being found dead by a self-afflicted shotgun wound in April of 1994. The last official track released by Nirvana had been the song ‘You Know You’re Right’, which was included with a Nirvana box set released in 2002.

Since his death, Courtney Love’s career had prospered off the strength of albums like Live Through This and Celebrity Skin, the former of which had rumours flowing that Cobain had helped write some of the songs. The AI program has been able to replicate Cobain’s voice singing the song.

Meanwhile, the surviving members of Soundgarden and late frontman Chris Cornell‘s widow Vicky have settled their long-standing legal dispute and will release the band’s final recordings.

In 2019, Cornell filed a lawsuit against the remaining members of the band and their manager over the rights to several unreleased Soundgarden songs, claiming the tracks entitled her to “hundreds of thousands of dollars” in royalties. The case was finally settled earlier in 2021 as a judge ruled that there was no evidence to suggest that the band’s surviving members are withholding royalties from Cornell.

Now, a joint statement from the band and Cornell reveals that they have settled their dispute and “reached an amicable out of court resolution”.

It added: “The reconciliation marks a new partnership between the two parties, which will allow Soundgarden fans around the world to hear the final songs that the band and Chris were working on.”
