The rock band reportedly will be teaming up with the controversial rapper to record some songs together.
A new and unique collaboration is about to be made by Panic! At the Disco as they plan to team up with rap star Snoop Dogg on a new record. The news was confirmed by the band's vocalist Brendon Urie who stated to the press that Snoop was the one who asked them to do the recording together.
Announcing the news, Brendon also explained that the idea for the collaboration came up after his band and Snoop shared the stage together at a recent gig in Germany, where they played the rapper's hit "Gin and Juice". "We played with Snoop in Germany and performed Gin And Juice with him. He said he'd like to sort out some recording time together," Brendon said. Unfortunately, there is still no further explanation either from Panic or Snoop on whether they will be recording for the band's next album or for the rapper's.
The band themselves are currently preparing to hit the road for a world tour in Asia, Australia and New Zealand promoting their latest LP, "Pretty. Odd.", dropped on May 25. The rockers will start their tour on August 3, performing at Fort Canning Park, Singapore and are set to end it on August 30 at Vector Arena in New Zealand.
Meanwhile, Snoop, who has just released his ninth studio set "Ego Trippin'" on May 11, reportedly has already started to work on a new studio album "Malice in Wonderland". Although the new album hasn't had a release date yet, the controversial rapper has confirmed that his new record will be produced by Dr. Dre.
