Panic! at the Disco cover the Weeknd's Starboy

Posted on

Panic! at the Disco frontman Brendon Urie is a “Starboy” in a new video from BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge, where the band covered the Weeknd’s latest single.

The video came out just a day after the Weeknd performed the track at Sunday’s American Music Awards, where he was nominated for two awards. Panic! at the Disco are currently promoting this year’s Death of a Bachelor, their sixth album and first without founding member Spencer Smith.

“… every time that we had a lineup change or anything like that, I was always in the same mindset: I never wanted to leave this group,” Urie previously told EW. “I always had the same passion, I always wanted to continue. The name Panic! symbolizes everything that I’ve worked for. It’s given me fans and the chance to travel worldwide and care about something that I created.”

The band co-headlined a tour with Weezer this summer and are going back on the road in 2017 with MisterWives and Saint Motel. See the dates here, and check out their take on “Starboy” below.
