Earlier today, Panic! At The Disco released their highly anticipated single, “Death Of a Bachelor,” which premiered on Bears Radio 1. Following the premiere, frontman Brendon Urie shared a statement via Instagram, commemorating the memory of Frank Sinatra, the influence he’s had, and the track’s significance.

“[Frank 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. I wrote a new album this year and even in the few songs that don’t sound remotely similar to any of his music I still felt his influence in the writing and the need to relate so personally to each song,” Urie says.

You can read the entire statement below, and stream the new single.

“What a world/What a life/I’m in love.” – Frank Sinatra Frank Sinatra turns 100 this year. I attach his music to so many memories: Opening presents on Christmas day, my grandparents teaching the rest of the family to swing dance, watching “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” with my siblings (Sinatra makes a cameo in the form of a cartoon sword singing “Witchcraft”). His 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. I wrote a new album this year and even in the few songs that don’t sound remotely similar to any of his music I still felt his influence in the writing and the need to relate so personally to each song. “Death Of A Bachelor” is very important to me. It expresses the bittersweet (but mostly sweet) end of an era. A look back at a part of my life now deceased. An “It’s A Wonderful Life”-esque look into a possibly different future. But mostly an appreciation for the present. So without further ado, I give you “Death Of A Bachelor”. Thank you. Listen to the song on #Beats1 today. @PeteWentz's show starts at 9am PST/12pm EST on @AppleMusic apple.co/Beats1 "Happily ever after/How could I ask for more/A lifetime of laughter/At the expense of the death of a bachelor” @BrendonUrie, Panic! At The Disco
