Death of a Bachelor - Panic! at the Disco
Death of a Bachelor

Death of a Bachelor is Panic! at the Disco’s fifth studio album, following 2013’s Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die. This is the first Panic! At This Disco album to be a solo effort by lead singer and songwriter Brendon Urie. The album features themes of growing older (“Golden Days”), celebration (“Victorious”), and accepting the past, regardless of what it might hold (“Hallelujah”). Free to explore his influences, Urie embraces the jazz-style of Frank Sinatra and mixes it with the unconventional harmonies and stylings of Queen to create an album that feels broad yet oddly cohesive. Urie described the album on the band’s website: When I was a little kid and I heard a song I liked on TV, I would jump up and run to the piano to try and figure it out by ear. When I was 10 or 11, I built myself a drum kit in the garage made out of empty laundry detergent buckets, old lawn chairs, paint cans, and old trash cans. Around that time, my parents got me my first guitar. A baby acoustic. I jumped between all of these instruments constantly to satisfy the ideas I heard in my head. At this young age, I realized that music would play a huge part in my life. […] Death of a Bachelor is in honor of those times I spent alone as a kid. Allowing music to consume me. Playing everything myself just to get the idea right and out of my head. It’s a beginning to a new era. And an homage to how it all began. This album is me. Running to the piano. Building a drum kit. Strumming a guitar. Some things never change.
