Alternative rock band My Chemical Romance has announced that “Planetary (Go!)”, from their upcoming album, Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, will be featured as the “lead song in the opening cinematic” of Gran Turismo 5. Before you run over to YouTube or anywhere else to preview the song – don’t bother. The album will not be released until November 22, and as of right now, there’s no way to listen to it.
(If you do run over to YouTube – and yes, I know you will – don’t be fooled by the troll who claims to have uploaded “Planetary (Go!)”. As confirmed by our own SolidSnakex and SoundHound, that’s not it.)
Keep in mind that GT intro tunes have always varied by region, so this may or may not be what you’ll hear when you first fire up the game. Here’s a copy of the full press release:
BURBANK, CA–(October 19, 2010) – “Planetary (GO!),” a track off My Chemical Romance’s upcoming new album Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, will be featured as the lead song in the opening cinematic of Sony Playstation’s Gran Turismo® 5 video game, available exclusively on Playstation® 3 this holiday.
“Gran Turismo is one of the most beloved videogame franchises of all time, with fans across the globe,” says My Chemical Romance’s lead singer Gerard Way. “Having a song featured as the lead intro to GT5 allows us to reach fans beyond radio and online and into a totally different platform. We are thrilled that our song is going to be the first thing you hear when you boot up the game.”
My Chemical Romance are currently making waves at Alternative radio with their new single “Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na),” off Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, which will be released by Reprise Records on November 22nd, 2010. The album was produced by new Warner Bros. Records Chairman Rob Cavallo, who produced MCR’s platinum-selling album The Black Parade as well as albums by Dave Matthews Band, Jawbreaker, and The Goo Goo Dolls, among many others.
