After two years, Panic! At The Disco is back with a new single, and a new music video that leaves you with only one reaction: “woah.” But if you’ve been keeping up with the new Fall Out Boy releases and their incredible, yet haunting, “Young Blood Chronicles” video series, Panic! At The Disco’s new video for “Miss Jackson” won’t seem all that far fetched. The song itself even sounds similar to new FOB hits like “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up)” and “Young Volcanoes.” Yet for Fueled By Ramen fans, this similarity is not a negative realization, it is a welcome one. Especially with the two bands going out on tour in the fall, it is reassuring to hear what might be considered a family of sounds, merging the two bands as musicians and friends.
Panic! At The Disco’s new single, “Miss Jackson,” which features Lolo, a perfect addition of female harmony to the song, is a great new release, satisfying the growing excitement of anxious Panic! fans. The band has been recording for some months now, with their next album, Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die! set to be released October 8th. “Miss Jackson” is not only proof of their hard work and the promise of an album release; the new song is also a testament to true Panic! sound. The song is upbeat and captivating in a way that only Brendon Urie can pull off, with his unique voice that is both erratic and heightened.
“Miss Jackson” is sure to be a summer hit, and can only further predict the success of the next Panic! At The Disco album. Get “Miss Jackson” on iTunes today and pre-order Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die! here! Check out the song below.
