In awesome but not-at-all surprising news, Panic! At The Disco are set to feature on an upcoming covers album of The Greatest Showman.
The release – which will be out on November 16 – will see Brendon Urie tackling the musical’s opening number, The Greatest Show.
Brendon tells Variety: “Benj Pasek and Justin Paul are phenomenal writers. They sent that song over and said, ‘We think you should sing this.’ And I heard it and I was like, ‘This sounds like a Panic! song. You guys did a Panic! song better than I’ve ever done a Panic! song. So I would love to.’… I tried it, and then for whatever reason – labels, management, I’m not sure why – I got cut out of the process and it seemed like it wasn’t going to happen. But finally I hooked back up with them and we got a demo version recorded and they mixed it and are putting it out. It’s awesome.”
