Brendon Urie commemorates Frank Sinatra in reflective “Death Of A Bachelor” statement

Earlier today, Panic! At The Disco released their highly anticipated single, “Death Of A Bachelor.” Following the song’s premiere on Beats Radio 1, frontman Brendon Urie shared a lengthy statement on his Instagram account, in which he commemorated Frank Sinatra and delved into the track’s underlying significance. “[Frank Sinatra’s] 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,” the frontman offered. “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.”

You can read all of what Mr. Urie had to say below.

“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
