Looking for a little salvation after a shame-filled weekend? Well you’re in luck my fellow dabblers in vice, Brendon Urie and the rest of Panic! At The Disco are back with “Hallelujah” [out now via DCD2 / Fueled By Ramen], an uplifting new single following the departure of founding member Spencer Smith last month. Part radio-friendly rocker, part choir-anthem; the alt-rock gospel number serves as today’s de facto absolution of past wrongs.
And accompanying the new release over on the band’s webpage, was a personal message of gratitude to the fans from the frontman himself saying in part:
“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.”
The good vibes are certainly flowing freely; get lifted with a spin below:
