‘The Umbrella Academy’ teases new Gerard Way track and trailer for season 2

Netflix show The Umbrella Academy has teased a new trailer and track from its creator, My Chemical Romance’s Gerard Way, set to be released today (July 8).

In an Instagram post, Netflix shared a ’70s-inspired graphic of what appear to be lyrics, with an illustration of Way in the centre. The post came with the caption, “feelin groovy. see u tmrw.” The aesthetic follows on from previous posts that share a similar retro feel.
