Here's some fun, unexpected news: Echosmith and Gerard Way are hitting the studio together, according to a pair of excited tweets. 

Echosmith shared the good news on Saturday night (Mar. 5), noting that the collaboration with the former My Chemical Romance frontman would happen "this week":

Way might just be producing for the pop-rock sibling quartet, which scored a Top 20 hit in 2014 with "Cool Kids," but let's hope that a duet with singer Sydney Sierota materializes. Presumably, the collaboration will appear on Echosmith's follow-up to its 2013 debut, Talking Dreams.

Way, who wrapped up his Hesitant Alien tour last fall, has been relatively quiet on the new music front. Check out this throwback video of the former MCR leader discussing Star Wars and more:
