My Chemical Romance lead singer Gerard Way has shared rough version of four new songs - Phoning It In, Crate Amp, Success! and Welcome To The Hotel.

He'd been working on the tracks with the intention of eventually releasing them as singles, but given the weird times we find ourselves in, he thought it was better to get it out there to the world.

His Instagram post about the songs begins "with all this uncertainty I just wanted to start uploading some unreleased stuff. Just so people can check it out and have something to listen to. Just felt like sharing."

Speaking about the tracks, Gerard says, “I’m calling all of this stuff Distraction Or Despair, since that seems to be the two things I keep shifting between. Probably a lot of other people too. I'm just winging it, keeping it casual.”

The statement was uploaded with a picture of his vocal cords, which he got checked prior to beginning the My Chemical Romance reunion, which his doctor told him were "a little red, but looking good."

Check out the statement, and the tracks, below.

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Hey all, with all this uncertainty I just wanted to start uploading some unreleased stuff. Just so people can check it out and have something to listen to. Just felt like sharing. I think I have a bunch of this stuff, as Doug and I have been recording little bits here and there over the years. Some of these, like Phoning It In, were things that I planned on releasing as singles, and I may still do that at some point when I finish them, but I figured why not. It feels good to share. Who knows if some of this stuff would have ever come out? Oh yeah, the music is on my soundcloud, which I haven’t really used in ages. The link is in my linktree, along with a link to the Covid-19 Response Fund. In case you are wondering, this is a picture of my vocal cords, from when I went to see the ear/nose/throat doc before embarking on this my chem journey, to make sure everything was in order. He said, “It’s a little red, but looking good”. I’m calling all of this stuff Distraction Or Despair, since that seems to be the two things I keep shifting between. Probably a lot of other people too. But I think only some of the tracks are tied to an “album” of that name. I’m just winging it, keeping it casual. May add some notes to the tracks. Hope everyone is safe and healthy. Rock on.
