Shand's many fans had a gasp of joy earlier this week when Shand posted a few cuts of various levels of completion, most notably the track "Where Are We Going?," his remake of a song originally recorded 40 years ago by Marvin Gaye and co-written by New Jersey songwriter Larry Mizell with ambient music artist Edward Larry Gordon. The song has the kind of old school groove that Shand's fans would expect, with vocals that have an older, slightly wearier edge to them than his 2002 release.

Take a listen to "Where Are We Going" and tell us what you think.
