Former My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way has a new song (“Millions”), a new video (very Nenah Cherry-meets-Ryan Heffington), and a new look (red hair/red eyeshadow – SQUEEEEAL!). Watch it after the jump. OMG, HE’S SO ADORABLE!
From The Guardian:
Gerard Way says he wants to “sonically galvanise people” with his first solo album. And what better way is there to stun your audience, not with spoon solos, say, but with a celebration of that much-maligned instrument, the guitar?
Utilising what Way describes as currently the “least radio-friendly instrument”, Hesitant Alien draws from the iconic guitar-led sounds he grew up with – particularly David Bowie circa TVC 1, Britpop and his guitar heroes during art school, Mary Timony and Carrie Brownstein. “I wanted to make the small things sound big,” he says about Hesitant Alien. “I knew there would be lots of fuzz pedals. I knew I would play Fender instruments.”
Lifted from the album is his new single, Millions, which is released on 17 November and comes backed with a video that looks as if it was inspired by Talking Heads’ Once in a Lifetime. Watch the premiere below, and let us know your thoughts.
