Personally, I like the lead vocal the way it is and I've really started to enjoy listening to this song recently. I'd be interested to hear it live.
This was actually very simple, prob took 10 mins. I took the MP3 of the song and ran that through an AI-service that separates the track into 4 "stems": Drums, Bass, Vocals and "Other".
Then I used Audacity (audio-editing software) and singled out the Vocals track. In that track are all the vocals, but with specific settings you can "find" just the lead vocal and single that out, while leaving the rest in place.
I've been playing around with various tools for the last month or so and working on some interesting U2 "Remixes". So while I was lucky with this track, for another song I'm working on I spent +/- 6 hours yesterday to get a 15 second segment edited in.. That song has been cracking my head for more than a week now..
Will post more about that around here soon!
