“It’s connected deeply to what I was before I started My Chemical Romance” – Gerard Way on new music
“I turned back into a pumpkin,” Gerard Way used a reverse Cinderella metaphor to describe his next step in music in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
“What I’m doing is super organic and completely pure, and I’m positive the longer I continue doing it, it will stay that way,” Way said.
“It’s connected deeply to what I was before I started My Chemical Romance and had that adventure. It’s more connected to who I really am, because who I really was in My Chemical Romance, that changed and reverted back”
The former My Chemical Romance frontman remains exploritory and metaphysical while divulging more details about his upcoming project in his latest interview. indicating again, “I’m trying to figure out what I want to do and what the universe needs me to do.”
Way does clarify (or make more cryptic, depending on how you look at it) previous remarks he made about whether or not the project will be a solo or collaborative venture. “I don’t quite know how to describe it or what to call it or how to put a name on it, if it’s a band or solo thing.”
In a previous interview, Way had noted, “I’d have to be a lot older and I’d need a lot more life experience [to do a solo project]. So I don’t feel like doing that. It just doesn’t feel right.”
For our AP 300 creative partner and cover star, it appears that only the universe will, indeed, tell when it comes to his musical direction.
WE DON’T NEED NO STINKIN’ UNIVERSE TO TELL US…
