A new song from Panic! at the Disco was released today, offering an exciting turn in news stories after the more somber news of Spencer Smith’s official departure from the band earlier this month. “Hallelujah” is the first release ofthe new material that’s been being worked on in the process of creating the band’s fifth studio album. But in the end, there’s a new Panic! at the Disco song, and that’s always a sign of something fantastic.
“Hallelujah” starts out with a messy amount of noise that easily builds up into a quick paced melody and rhythm driven song. There’s strong traces of some older tracks, mixing in more of the carnival-esque sounds that several of the group’s top songs are known for while dragging in the sounds that helped define Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die. “Hallelujah” is lightly dusted with emotions, but overall has a tone to it that makes it hold the attention as a myriad of different stories are painted through the lyrics.
All in all, “Hallelujah” is a great song and really grabs the attention for whatever news is next released by the band next. At this time, there’s no information on the fiffth album so there no title or rlease date to wrap this up with. We just have to wait for the next bit of news from Panic! at the Disco.
