When Billboard caught up with Brendon Urie just a few weeks ago, the Panic! at the Disco frontman (really, at this point, he IS the band) told us, "I would have loved to see [Frank] Sinatra in the late '50s, early '60s -- like in the Sands in Vegas, just chain-smoking, drinking whiskey."
Sure enough, the music video for "Death of a Bachelor" -- the title track to Panic!'s upcoming album -- opens with Urie sitting alone at a table in an Art Deco jazz club, playing with a lighter and drinking whiskey.
Coincidence? Absolutely not. The latest P!ATD song oozes Ol' Blue Eyes vibes, through the distinct lens of Urie's voice and increasing sonic experimentation.
