The recently launched Lost Tapes of the 27 Club project uses AI software to create songs in the style of musicians who died at the age of 27. One of the featured tracks is called "Drowned in the Sun", and it comes pretty close to replicating a Nirvana song written by Kurt Cobain himself. With opening guitars starting out restrained before reaching a crescendo on the chorus, the track is reminiscent of Nirvana's signature hit, "Come as You Are". Its chorus sounds like something Cobain might have written, too, with lyrics like, "I don't care/ I feel as one, drowned in the sun." As explained in a Rolling Stone feature, Google's AI program Magenta was used to analyze the pioneering grunge band's music and create the instrumental track.
