The album is now available for pre-order on the iTunes Store accompanied by three instant grat downloads: “Emperor’s New Clothes,” “Hallelujah,” and the recent #1 hit, “Victorious.”
In addition to the new album, Panic! released a stunning new video for “Emperor’s New Clothes” directed by award-winning filmmaker/choreographer Daniel “Cloud” Campos.

Produced by Jake Sinclair (Taylor Swift, Fall Out Boy), Death Of A Bachelor marks the first release from Panic! At The Disco in nearly two years, following 2013’s acclaimed Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die. The album has already generated significant steam – current single “Victorious” rocketed to #1 on iTunes Top Songs chart, # 1 on Billboard + Twitter’s Trending 140 chart, while also trending worldwide on Tumblr and Twitter.
The first single off DOAB, “Hallelujah,” made chart history for the band with a Top 40 debut on Billboard’s “Hot 100” – Panic! At The Disco’s second Top 40 hit and first since 2006’s breakthrough classic, “I Write Sins, Not Tragedies.” The album’s title track premiered exclusively on Apple Music’s Beats 1 Radio where Urie described “Death of A Bachelor” as, “It’s like some Beyoncé beats with some Sinatra vocals. It’s really crazy… [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.”
