The day when ex-MCR frontman Gerard Way recorded ‘Cancer’ for the album Black Parade, a unique cover was also recorded. Gerard recorded a cover of ‘Superstar’ by The Carpenters, as the singer would often warm up to them while in the studio.
Now the cover has surfaced, and social media and MCR fans alike are rejoicing over this lost piece of Way’s vocal work. Way himself even commented on the cover via social media and Twitter :
Way further mentions on how they almost ended up putting the cover on the album, which would have been pretty interesting seeing how iconic Black Parade became for the band.
Either way, it’s a little piece of MCR history and Way’s vocal talents that are just stunning and definitely a unique and special throwback find.
