DOWNLOAD Panic! At the Disco – Pray For The Wicked (2018) Album Zip
Panic! At The Disco’s new album Pray For The Wicked was originally going to be named after a Lord Byron quote: “Fame is the thirst of youth.” Frontman Brendon Urie played with the idea, but ultimately decided that it didn’t touch enough on what the album is about.
“My despair at the current state of the world, and wanting to reflect back on my childhood…” the 31-year-old explains. “I thought it was a really beautiful line, but I’m definitely not as thirsty anymore, not as youthful… and that s**t doesn’t matter to me anymore. Fame, all that s**t, is a by-product of the things I really care about.”
Urie is speaking over the phone from his home in LA, not too long after a mind-boggling performance at the BBC’s Biggest Weekend in Swansea, where the band performed tracks off the upcoming album plus a storming rendition of Queen’s “Bohemian Rapsody” – a track Urie has been serenading fans with for the past four years. He’s excited about the upcoming film starring Rami Malek, and despite his theatre background, says he wasn’t tempted to audition.
“No, no way, I didn’t even get a call, I didn’t put my name out there,” he says hastily, laughing. “That’s a different undertaking… like I know Sacha Baron Cohen was working on it at the beginning but it didn’t work out, which I totally understand: Queen didn’t want to show Freddie Mercury’s ‘real s**t’ – apparently he threw these f**king wild parties and all this other stuff happened… but either way I’m still excited to see it.”
