Yesterday, The Umbrella Academy shared its first official trailer. The trailer is soundtracked by a cover of the Simon & Garfunkel classic ‘A Hazy Shade of Winter’.
Gerard Way confirmed via Instagram post that the cover is performed by Way, Jarrod Alexander and former My Chemical Romance guitarist Ray Toro. It’s the closest thing we’ve gotten to a My Chem reunion in years and we are living in bliss. In the post, Way shared “This is surreal and exciting and just wild. Getting to cover ‘[A] Hazy Shade Of Winter’ for this with Ray Toro and Jarrod Alexander was so much fun.”

The Umbrella Academy is set to drop on Netflix on February 15th. Upon the announcement of the Netflix adaptation, Way shared:
“I am thrilled that The Umbrella Academy has found a home at Netflix. I couldn’t think of a better place for the vision Gabriel Ba and myself had when creating the comic, and cannot wait for people to experience that world as a live action show”.
