It’s been a while since we heard from Gerard Way but that drought is set to end later tonight (10th February). Breaking the news on Twitter, Gerard has announced that he’ll be dropping a cover of The Carpenter‘s ‘Superstar‘. Be warned though, “It’s super depressing”.
8pm PST I will be releasing my cover of Superstar by The Carpenters.

The cover comes from Gerard’s days in My Chemical Romance.
“For real just heard a crazy thing I did 10 years ago while recording Black Parade, found by our engineer, Doug,” he explained on Twitter. “Want to figure out how to put this out cuz y’all really should hear this, it’s pretty ridiculous. I’m singing a cover of ‘Superstar’ by The Carpenters on the recording. Can’t officially release it because the music is from some karaoke cd we got, but I don’t think there’s anything wrong with using soundcloud. I used to do my vocal warm ups for Black Parade by singing The Carpenters, so I guess we decided to record it one day.”
Set your countdowns and enjoy the original while we wait.
