Gerard Way has been busy on all fronts over the past few months, releasing a new addition to his comic book series The Umbrella Academy, said series getting a confirmed premiere date on Netflix next year, and also the release of new singles.
Following on from the Halloween-esque cut ‘Baby, You’re A Haunted House’ in October, and last month’s ‘Getting Down The Germs’, December sees a Christmassy addition in ‘Dasher’.
Way has performed a slightly different version of ‘Dasher’ live in the past, and also revealed on Twitter in 2014 (here) that he originally wrote it for his debut solo album ‘Hesitant Alien’, but it was left unfinished.

At the time of writing, it’s uncertain whether ‘Dasher’ and the other two recently released tracks will remain as stand alone tracks, or will feature on a forthcoming sophomore album.
Regardless, due to this recent return to musical activity, Way is expected to release his second solo album next year.
