Panic! stream Death Of A Bachelor

Panic! At The Disco have released the track Death Of A Bachelor.

It’ll feature on their as-yet-untitled upcoming album, and follows Hallelujah which was revealed earlier this year.

Mainman Brendon Urie says much of the follow-up to 2013’s Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die! has been influenced by the music of Frank Sinatra.

He says: “I wrote a new album this year and even in the few songs that don’t sound remotely similar to any of his music, I still felt his influence in the writing and the need to relate so personally to each song.

Death Of A Bachelor is very important to me. It expresses the bittersweet (but mostly sweet) end of an era. A look back at a part of my life now deceased. An It’s A Wonderful Life-esque look into a possibly different future – but mostly an appreciation for the present.”

Drummer Spencer Smith quit the band in April, with Urie saying he backed the decision. They head out on a run of US shows later this month.
