Sometimes the most surprising collaborations are the most unexpected ones, right? That seems to be the mentality behind EDM up-and-comer Dillon Francis and Panic! at the Disco frontman Brendon Urie! The unlikely duo teamed up for "Love in the Middle of a Firefight," the latest from Francis' upcoming debut full-length Money Sucks, Friends Rule. What a perfect title!
"This song was a dream come true to make w/ Brendon Urie from Panic! At The Disco," Francis wrote on the song's YouTube page. "It's definitely one of my favorite songs on the album and I'm so happy I finally get to share it with the world!!! I hope this shows you how diverse all of my album is going to be!" His enthusiasm isn't misguided—this song is a banger.
"Love in the MIddle of a Firefight" kicks of with a dark dance hall electro-pop beat before catching up with the "na na na na" of Urie's opening vocals. He launches into the life-affirming verse, "There's a war we can't ignore / Waging silence on our lives / We will overcome / Let the cowards run and hide / We were born to take it back." Fitting for a chorus of, "This ain't over / We own the night / Love in the middle of a firefight." If this doesn't get you moving, nothing will!
