Well, Panic at the Disco fans, it's that time of year again, where we wait in anticipation for yet another long awaited release. "Death of a Bachelor" will be the first studio album where all founding members have fully departed, save for lead singer Brendon Urie.
Whether you miss the old line-up or are just stoked that the band is back, one thing is for certain: you will fall madly in love with Brendon Urie all over again as soon as you watch the new music video for "Death of a Bachelor", the album's title track.
Taking cues from Justin Timberlake, Frank Sinatra, and other crooners, Urie is obviously trying to cement himself as some kind of 21st Century heart-throb, and man does he succeed. The video reminds me of Suit and Tie, another 21'st Century pop track that defends the classics, yet propels us into the future of music. I love tracks and visuals that give us that context. It's vintage cool, completely different and brand new for 2016.
The track itself is flawless, marrying the EDM fortitude of a real musician and the crooning vocals of a Michael Buble spin-off, "Death of a Bachelor" could be the soundtrack of your spring.
Brendon Urie might be striking out on his own, but damn, he looks good doing it.
Death of a Bachelor hits iTunes on January 15th.
