Death of a Bachelor is  American rock band Panic! at the Disco’s fifth studio album released on January 15, 2016 on DCD2 and Fueled by Ramen. Death of a Bachelor consists of 11 songs varying of fast pace work out worthy to slow paced emotional. This is the first album without drummer Spencer Smith and was composed, written, and recorded all by the lead vocalist Brendon Urie. Urie described the song Death of a Bachelor as “very jazzy and sinatra-esque”. He also said in an interview with Gigwise that, “I try to do something that I haven’t done before. ‘Hallelujah’ sounds very much like itself, and nothing like anything else on the album. There are songs where I try to croon like Frank Sinatra – and I say ‘try’. There are songs where I try to scream at the top of my lungs and do Queen harmonies – it’s kind of all over the place. There’s a lot of hip-hop influence, a lot of classic rock influence, Sinatra, and that’s really exciting to me.” With their clever lyrics Death of a Bachelor is a must listen album for those of you who like American Rock.
