So far we've heard "Hallelujah," and now we've got another song from Panic! At the Disco's new album. 

Filling in for Zane Lowe on Beats 1 Apple radio today (Sept. 1), Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz premiered a new Panic! song called "Death of a Bachelor."

 

"What a world/What a life/I'm in love." - Frank Sinatra Frank Sinatra turns 100 this year. I attach his music to so many memories: Opening presents on Christmas day, my grandparents teaching the rest of the family to swing dance, watching "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" with my siblings (Sinatra makes a cameo in the form of a cartoon sword singing "Witchcraft"). His music has been a major player in the soundtrack of my life. So it's only right that I return the favor and/or pay it forward. 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. So without further ado, I give you "Death Of A Bachelor". Thank you. Listen to the song on #Beats1 today. @PeteWentz's show starts at 9am PST/12pm EST on @AppleMusic apple.co/Beats1 "Happily ever after/How could I ask for more/A lifetime of laughter/At the expense of the death of a bachelor" @BrendonUrie, Panic! At The Disco

For Panic! frontman Brendon Urie, the song is both a kiss-off to the single life (he got married to Sarah Orzechowski in 2013) and a tribute to Frank Sinatra, who would have turned 100 this year.

"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," Urie wrote on Instagram. "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." 

Panic! at the Disco's forthcoming fifth studio album doesn't have a title or release date, but we're thinking that could change soon. "Hallelujah," the first single, spent one week at No. 40 on the Billboard Hot 100 and peaked at 11 in 16 weeks on Alternative Songs.
