Kit Chan, the Singapore Icon had worked on a slew of major projects since she made her big showbiz comeback in Toy Factory’s melancholic theatre production “December Rains” in August last year. She recently produced a Singapore Civil Defence Force music video for the iconic song “Home” with 39 other local artistes and even performed in a series of concerts with the Singapore Chinese Orchestra for the Huayi Festival that were completely sold out in less than two days.
But of all the projects she’s done in her showbiz career so far, few are as personal as the her latest album “Re-interpreting”, which cost her S$100,000 to produce and was released under her very own indie label Banshee Empire. “In the past six years, people have asked me why I have not released a comeback album. I could only tell them ‘I don’t have the feel’.
“When you don’t have the right feeling it is very difficult, especially when you don’t have a music contract and nobody is forcing you to do it, so I just left it at that until December 2009, when I started getting the right feeling again.” Chan spent the following year juggling her other projects and recording “Re-interpreting”, which sees her cover a variety of hits in English, Mandarin and Cantonese hits like Mavis Hee’s “Regret” and “Bridge over Troubled Water” by Simon and Garfunkel.
