Remy Shand Finally Returns with New Music
As Soul Bounce points out, Shand posted a soulful new tune called "Where Are We Going?," along with a vintage-looking found footage video. According to the caption accompanying the clip, Shand played all of the instruments and recorded and mixed it himself at Hollywood Dan's Sound Lair.
CORRECTION: As a commenter has pointed out, "Where Are We Going?" was actually written by Marvin Gaye.
He additionally posted a bedroom keyboard jam called "Rollergirls," along with the message, "Live looper jam from my bedroom. Crank up your subs!! Please feel free to add some tracks to this, sing over it, or just whatever! Make some art using what I've done as the foundation. Re-post it after you've added something and send me the link so I can put it up here. I'd love to hear what you come up with :)"
He also posted two songs — "Lust" and "Mark Gonzales" — under the band name Canary, writing, "Canary is the 4 track cassette project of musician Remy Shand." The song "Lust" reportedly dates back to 1997.
It's unclear at this point whether these songs will represent a full-blown comeback for the reclusive musician, or if he will now go into hibernation for another decade. In any case, these latest developments may finally give the folks at Where's Remy Shand? some answers.
