Gerard Way took to twitter yesterday to reveal a long-lost recording outtake from the session for MCR's landmark concept album The Black Parade.

The clip, a cover version of The Carpenter's classic "Superstar" was used by the singer as his warm-up in the studio before he laid down his vocals for the track "Cancer", almost putting a cover version on the final album.

Gerard explains the story in full below:

The track certainly wouldn't feel out of place on the album, its piano-led melodrama being a perfect fit for this era of the band.
