Panic! at the Disco teased a major announcement regarding new music earlier this week, and that announcement came on early Thursday morning (October 22) when the group shared its new album title and release date, as well as a new song and video. Death of a Bachelor, Panic!'s fifth studio set, will be released on January 15, 2016, and fans can watch the colorful clip to new song "Emperor's New Clothes" now:
"If you don't know, now you know / I'm taking back the crown!" frontman Brendon Urie wails while turning into a horned beast in the colorful "Emperor's New Clothes." Indeed, Panic! is sounding bold when it comes to its first full-length since 2013's Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!:
It’s a beginning to a new era. And an homage to how it all began. New album 'Death Of A Bachelor' out January 15 - https://t.co/L5lXpqrumj— Panic! At The Disco (@PanicAtTheDisco) October 22, 2015
A pre-order is already up on Apple Music for Death of a Bachelor, and fans will get "Emperor's New Clothes," as well as recently released tracks "Victorious" and "Hallelujah," instantly with the click of a button. Perhaps they'll also gift fans with a studio version of Marching Band! at the Disco at some point?
Before the new Panic! era begins, read Urie's exclusive reflection on their landmark debut, A Fever You Can't Sweat Out, which recently celebrated its 10th anniversary.
