Panic! At The Disco Reveal New Song 'Death of a Bachelor'

(Radio.com) Brendon Urie says the new Panic! At The Disco album is finished and nearly ready to go, and of all the tracks, "Death of a Bachelor" is his favorite. Urie phoned Pete Wentz (who was sitting in for Beats 1 Radio host Zayn Lowe) Monday (Sept 1) to celebrate the world premier of the song and reveal the story behind it.

Urie explains that the song details giving up his single life and how comfortable he is with that change. "You kinda find this person that you connect with and you can kind of throw away your history. You don't want to just forget about it.

"You just don't need to look back. You don't regret anything from the past. You don't have any want to go back to a life of being a bachelor. You know I met my wife Sarah and I was just like, this is it," says Urie. "I figured out that this is the happiest that I've ever been."

Urie addresses what fans must think of him, noting that it's no secret that fans seem to prefer single celebrities. "You're a rock star. You should be this single dude that goes around and sleeps with a bunch of girls. That's not really me, you know. This was just my voice, telling exactly how I felt at that time."

"It's like if Sinatra and Beyoncé made a song together," Urie half-jokingly explained to Wentz. "It's like some Beyoncé beats with some Sinatra vocals. It's really crazy."

It's no secret that Urie idolizes Sinatra, the singer who would have been 100 this year. "I attach his music to so many memories," he said in a post. "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."
