This is the amateur-made AI John Lennon song that’s freaking everyone out.

When it comes to AI, there are so many legal and ethical things that need to work out. Here’s a prime example.

A YouTuber named Kid Klava had a thought. “I wrote this song a few weeks ago, but when it came to recording it, I realised my voice wasn’t quite right for it. This morning, I decided to check out this Al voice replacement thing that everyone’s been losing their shit over, and then I realised…I can get John to sing it for me! And why not get Paul on backing vocals while I’m at it? It was surprisingly easy and it only took a few minutes to generate the vocal.”

You can see why people at the Beatles organization and their record label are freaking out. Thoughts?
