Gerard Way 'Hesitant Alien' (album stream)
As we've mentioned more than a few times, former My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way is going solo. His Hesitant Alien LP still isn't due out until September 30 through Warner Bros., but Way has done us a solid and slipped us the stream early.

"I looked to the Britpop poets like Jarvis Cocker and Damon Albarn, drawing upon everyday life," Way previously explained of the album in statement, adding, "I also experimented with the abstract, and looked at Frank Black's work both with the Pixies, and as a solo artist. There was no concept and no call-to-arms."

Well, now you can hear it all play out below and see for yourself if this first solo step is a move in the right direction.
