Gerard Way is streaming his debut solo album Hesitant Alien now via SoundCloud. The much-anticipated work is set for release next Tuesday, September 30 on Warner Bros. Records. Listen to it below and let us know what you think. Do you agree with our 4/5-star review of the album?
Today has been a particularly exciting day for Way as we recently caught wind that he's filming a music video for “Millions” in addition to streaming the album now.
Some fun facts about Hesitant Alien while you listen:

•“No Shows” is Way's current favorite song from the album.
•“Maya The Psychic” is in-part about mental illness.
