The Las Vegas-based rock band announces that their 'celebratory and cathartic' new album, 'Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die', will arrive on October 8.
Panic At the Disco's new single "Miss Jackson" has arrived along with its accompanying music video. The Lolo-assisted track features dark lyrics about being obsessively in love with a woman who's hard to pin down.
In the four-minute music video for the single, frontman Brendon Urie is seen in a motel room before driving his car through Las Vegas street in search of mysterious "Miss Jackson", who is played by the former "30 Rock" star Katrina Bowden. In the end, Bowden's character has her head chopped off by Urie.
"Miss Jackson" is the lead single off the band's just-announced fourth album, "Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die". The follow-up to 2011's "Vices & Virtues" was produced by Butch Walker and is due out on October 8.
"TOO WEIRD TO LIVE, TOO RARE TO DIE!" sees the band paying homage to their Las Vegas roots via a glittery sonic approach inspired by their ever-increasing collection of vintage and modern synthesizers," the band said of the new album in a press release.
"While jam-packed with high-energy songs like 'Vegas Lights' and 'Nicotine', the album also features Urie's most open and introspective songwriting to date, with highlights including the tender paean that closes the collection, 'The End of All Things'," the band continued. "Simultaneously celebratory and cathartic, 'TOO WEIRD TO LIVE, TOO RARE TO DIE!' is Panic! At The Disco at their distinctive best -personal, potent, and utterly irresistible."
Panic At the Disco is set to embark on a series of tour dates beginning August 4. They will join Fall Out Boy for several other dates in September.
