Listen: Gerard Way gets down with the ‘Germs’ on new song

After surprising fans with a new spooky song just in time for Halloween, Gerard Way has returned with yet another new track for his loyal followers. On Friday (Nov. 16), the former My Chemical Romance frontman unleashed the lyrics video for his second new tune in a month. Titled “Getting Down the Germs,” the track features Way’s former band mate Ray Toro on drums and guitar while flutist Sara Andon also contributes to the new song.

As with all his other solo releases including his debut album Hesitant Alien, Way enlisted producer Doug McKean to take over production duties.

“I had really been wanting a song that featured the flute prominently for quite some time,” Way explains in a statement about the surprise addition of a flute on the new song.

He continues: “It sits in there perfectly, like it was made to pay the song a visit.”

Listen to “Getting Down the Germs” above.

“Getting Down the Germs” comes several weeks after Way released his first new song in four years, “Baby, You’re a Haunted House.” Way released his debut solo album, Hesitant Alien, in September of 2014.

In a post on Facebook earlier this year, Way revealed that he had plans to work on new music every Friday. If the debut of these two new songs is any indication, then fans should anticipate some more new jams before 2018 comes to a close.

Recently, Way’s music has taken a backseat to his comic book series, “The Umbrella Academy.” The hit series will be making its transition from the pages of a book to the small screen in 2019.

During a panel at New York Comic Con in October, it was confirmed that the show will make its long-awaited debut on Netflix in February of 2019.
