11/07/2015: "Nobuo Uematsu is Not Working on the Remake"
In a streamed video interview with French gaming site Jeuxvideo.com, part of which is still available at Twitch, composer Nobuo Uematsu said that he is "not at all" working on the FFVII Remake.
Uematsu, of course, wrote the music for all of the pre-PS2 main series Final Fantasies, including FFVII. Him not returning to contribute to the remake project is disappointing, but we've yet to see what it means for the game's music. Presumably, the original game's score will be used, but now we know that unless something changes, it won't be Uematsu overseeing any new arrangements and/or recordings that will likely come about.
