My Chemical Romance's Gerard Way says the band's new album contains the "greatest song" the band have ever written.

Way compares the track, called 'Death Before Disco', to Bruce Springsteen's 1975 classic 'Born To Run'.

"The songs are all wildly different, but the one I'm really excited about is called 'Death Before Disco'," he told Rolling Stone.

"It's a completely different sound for the band – it's like an anti-party song that you can party to. I can't wait for people to hear it. It brings back, lyrically, some of that wonderful fiction from the first album. I think we wrote our 'Born To Run', and I'm so amped about that. To me, it's the greatest song we've ever written – it's my favourite MCR song."

The band are recording their fourth album with Brendan O'Brien, who coincedentally produced Springsteen's latest album 'Working On A Dream'.

Way praised O'Brien's contributions to the album, saying "[he has] a process that always keeps everyone involved the whole time".
