Let me see your jazz hands.

The lyrics video for My Chemical Romance’s “Na Na Na” has been released on Youtube this week.

This seems to be a growing trend within the music industry of releasing a lyrics video ahead of an actual video. It makes one question why this is happening. Are singers no longer pronouncing their words enough for people to make sense of them? Or is it just another way or promotion?

I would guess the latter.

The video itself has a very 80s feel to it and, for lack of better words, rather trippy. If you’re not careful, it may bring on an epileptic fit, with all the flashing and changing of colours.

The more I listen to it, the more it starts to sound like a progression from The Black Parade and not a complete divergence.

Whatever their plan was in releasing a lyrics video, they have got my interest piqued even further.

Bring on November 22.
