Panic! at the Disco Evoke Sinatra With 'Death of a Bachelor' Video: Watch

Panic! at the Disco's Brendon Urie channels a vintage Frank Sinatra vibe with the video for "Death of a Bachelor," the title-track from the band's new LP, out January 15. The clip, directed by SCANTRON and Mel Soria, finds the singer crooning and gliding around a small club, as the song's electro-jazz arrangement swells.

"I’m sitting where I wrote the song of the same name," Urie wrote on the Panic! website, announcing the video. "Holiday decorations at my back. Fire burning low. A Muppet Christmas Carol playing in the background. Maybe it’s the holiday spirit or maybe it’s this Disney movie, but I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate you and can’t wait to show you what I’ve been working on."

Death of a Bachelor is Panic!'s fifth studio LP but the first to feature only Urie from the original line-up. The suave "Bachelor" video follows last month's goofy "Victorious" clip, which finds Urie boxing and helping an old lady cross the street.
