'AI is about to turn our world upside down...' Peter Gabriel predicts the impact Artificial Intelligence is going to have on music

Peter Gabriel predicts that Artificial Intelligence will soon be able to create better songs than he can.

The former Genesis frontman has just released his 10th solo LP 'I/O', his first full-length album of new original material in over 21 years, but Gabriel believes in the future that AI is going to “turn our world upside down” and will be able to do many things better than humans, including making music.

In an interview with The Sun newspaper, the 73-year-old musician said: "AI is about to turn our world upside down and should be able to do all our jobs, including mine, better than we can.

“So we need to do some urgent thinking and brainstorming about how we can best live with each other and AI in the future.

“People talk of the ‘age of abundance’ and clearly that’s ridiculous for most people struggling to pay their bills but I do believe it’s coming if we can get through this difficult period of transition.”

Peter - who is married to Meabh Flynn with who he has son Isaac - and added that the human race is facing “very real, existential problems” and we need ingenuity to fix it.
