Brendon Urie explains the heartfelt message behind ‘High Hopes’

After giving us a near aneurysm a few days ago with a major hint drop, Panic! have finally released their third single off Pray For The Wicked, ‘High Hopes’.

The track is an intense horn-laden fest that carries Brendon’s exuberant vocal performance – ‘High Hopes’ is an earworm if there ever was one. It does take on a hip hop inflected beat, as much of Panic!’s newest output features, however, if you’re craving a take on the baroque pop stylings of Vices, you’ll find something to drool over in this pop feast.

Brendon has taken to Twitter to explain the meaning behind the track, opening up about what exactly inspired the lyrics and

“I spent too long not setting my expectations high enough, worried about how it felt to fail. I hit a point when I realized I had to aim high and fail, fail, fail in order to keep growing. This one is for all of you who helped me go for it all. I thank you.”
