So when Panic! At The Disco frontman Brendon Urie told Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz that his new single, 'Death Of A Bachelor', sounds like a mix of Frank Sinatra and Beyoncé... it turns out that he wasn’t kidding.
About the new song, Urie says:
“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."
