Geddy Lee has shared two new songs, Gone, and I Am…You Are. The songs, released as The Lost Demos, were recorded during the writing sessions for his 2000 solo debut album, My Favorite Headache.
“I’m excited to see these two lost demos released,” Geddy said. “I loved the songs when they were written, and in some ways, they feel as fresh and perhaps more relevant all these years later.”
Working with Producer/Engineer David Bottrill, Geddy has had the two new tracks properly mixed and mastered for the first time. You can hear them here.
Both songs conjure the spirit of the classic My Favorite Headache, released on 14 November 2000. Taking the reins as co-producer, Geddy cut the album in Toronto, Vancouver and Seattle. He was joined by multi-instrumentalist and co-producer Ben Mink and drummer Matt Cameron [Soundgarden, Pearl Jam].
A new docuseries, Geddy Lee Asks: Are Bass Players Human TOO?, was released exclusively on Paramount+ in the U.S. and Canada. Releases in UK, Australia, Latin America, Brazil, Italy, France, Germany, Switzerland and Austria have followed. The docuseries finds Geddy immersed in fascinating conversations with iconic bass players, including Les Claypool, Krist Novoselic, Robert Trujillo, and Melissa Auf Der Maur.
Having released his autobiography, Geddy Lee: My Effin’ Life, which debuted at Number 3 on the New York Times Bestseller List, Geddy launched a popular In Conversation and Fan Q&A series across North America. In Conversation opens in Wolverhampton this weekend, the first of five appearances.
