The whispers were true! Panic! At The Disco are back, with a brand new song ‘Hallelujah’. And no, it isn’t a classic Paramore cover (though that WOULD be awesome, right? – Ed). After hinting we’d hear new music this year, Brendon Urie clearly was having a good old laugh at our expense – with the new track dropping only a week later.
A note posted with the track reads:
“Thank you for always being there. For speaking your mind. For following what you believe. For allowing me to grow. For granting me the opportunity to live my dream. Words simply can’t express my full appreciation and gratitude for you.
“As I begin what feels like a new chapter of my life, I’m filled with immense excitement and a fresh sense of hope. I’ve seen this band through every phase, every change, every hardship. And yet my appreciation and love grows with every breath.
“So I lift my arms in praise of your greatness. YOU are great. YOU are beautiful. YOU are talented, and smart, and kind, and loving, and generous, and simply amazing.
“And you make me want to scream “HALLELUJAH!” from the top of my lungs with every bit of fervor and strength I possess. And I invite you to join me as you have over and over again.”
Panic! At The Disco are set to play Reading & Leeds this August. Album by then? You’d not bet against it. Stream ‘Hallelujah’ below.
