Listen: Gerard Way Covers Simon And Garfunkel’s ‘A Hazy Shade Of Winter’

Gerard Way has a new song out and it’s a reinterpretation of a classic. The former My Chemical Romance singer put his spin on Simon And Garfunkel’s “A Hazy Shade of Winter.” The cover is featured in the trailer for the Netflix series The Umbrella Academy, based on the graphic novel of the same name written by Way. Listen to the song below.

“This is surreal and exciting and just wild,” Way writes in an Instagram post. “Getting to cover ‘[A] Hazy Shade Of Winter’ for this with Ray Toro and Jarrod Alexander was so much fun. Can’t wait for you all to see the show when it comes out February 15th on Netflix. The cast and crew and Steve Blackman the showrunner did a spectacular job with our baby.”

Executive produced by Way and illustrator Gabriel Bá, The Umbrella Academy stars Ellen Page and Mary J. Blige. The show premieres on Netflix February 15.
