Gerard Way Might Record A New Song On Billie Eilish's Signature Ukulele

Though My Chemical Romance's huge global live comeback has been pushed back to 2021, frontman Gerard Way has been pretty damn active this year, with season two of The Umbrella Academy on Netflix, and some solo material to boot. And now the musician has hinted that even more material could be on the way…

Gerard was recently gifted one of Billie Eilish's signature Fender ukuleles, and as coincidence would have it, he had written a song called Ukulele Songs before the instrument arrived. As such, the frontman has announced that if he goes ahead and records this new number, he'll be using Billie's blohsh-adorned uke for the job.

"So one of my friends, favorite people in the world, and patron of the arts, Michael Schulz, worked with his company Fender to collab with very cool musician Billie Eilish on her rad looking and sounding ukulele," Gerard posted on Instagram, alongside a photo of the instrument in his garden.

"They were kind enough to send this to B and Linds and myself so I wanted to post a picture of it in our garden. It has a really interesting pattern on it, and you can plug it in, so now I’m going to plug this into a fuzz pedal and see what happens. I may report back with my findings. It’s fun to play. I don’t normally play ukulele but I did in fact recently write a song called Ukulele Songs, which is about ukulele songs. I may share that. I’m not sure, but if I record it, I will use this ukulele. Have a good Saturday. Congrats on the uke, Billie!"

Okay, we would seriously love to hear this.
