My Chemical Romance have re-recorded their hit single 'Sing' to help raise funds for victims of the Japan earthquake and tsunami.

The song, taken from their 2010 album 'Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys' album, was remade in the studio with Philharmonic conductor Suzie Katayama.

The new version of the song has also been renamed with the hash tag '#SINGItForJapan' to reflect tweets fans were posting to the group and a new video has been recorded.

Watch footage of the clip below.

"My Chemical Romance has always shared a special connection with Japan," the band wrote on their official website Mychemicalromance.com.

"While in the UK, we received news of the events unfolding after the massive earthquake. It affected us in a profound way. Moved by the terrible tragedy in Japan, and inspired by our fans, we set to work on #SINGItForJapan, a re-imagining of SING."

The song is now available through iTunes.

All proceeds will go to the American Red Cross for the relief efforts in Japan.

"Using classic Japanese themes in the orchestration, we hope we have honoured and paid tribute to the people of Japan," the band added.
