My Chemical Romance’s Gerard Way has released a new song called ‘Here Comes the End’, alongside the the trailer for the second season of his Netflix series The Umbrella Academy. The track features vocals from Judith Hill, who previously worked with Prince, Michael Jackson and Josh Groban. Check it out below.
“I was originally inspired to write this track when series one of The Umbrella Academy was being shot; by the time I finished it 2020 was in full swing, the world had taken a profound turn and the song was finished in a surreal new reality,” the My Chemical Romance frontman explained in a statement accompanying the release.
Way had dropped a number of previously-unreleased solo demos this year, but ‘Here Comes the End’ marks his first official solo release of 2020. My Chemical Romance, who reformed late last year following a long hiatus, had booked an extensive worldwide tour for 2020, which was postponed due COVID-19.
