Panic! at the Disco fans can say “hallelujah” now that the band has released its latest single.

The band dropped a new song, “Hallelujah,” late Sunday night, accompanied by a message from frontman Brendon Urie on the band’s official site.

“Thank you for always being there,” Urie wrote. “For speaking your mind. For following what you believe. For allowing me to grow. For granting me the opportunity to live my dream.”

The song, which opens with some brass accompaniment, is an upbeat note for the band, which recently underwent some bad news with the departure of drummer Spencer Smith.

Urie, the only remaining original member of the band, took the arrival of “Hallelujah” to express his excitement for the future despite the recent setback of losing Smith.

“As I begin what feels like a new chapter of my life, I’m filled with immense excitement and a fresh sense of hope,” Urie wrote. “I’ve seen this band through every phase, every change, every hardship. And yet my appreciation and love grows with every breath.”
