Brendon Urie gets naked for latest Panic! at the Disco video
TORONTO — Brendon Urie stripped down and dared to bare for the latest video from Panic! at the Disco.
Directed by DJay Brawner, the video for “Girls/Girls/Boys” from the band’s new album Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die! has had nearly half-a-million views since it was posted Monday.
“[It] is such a racy song that it immediately made me think of one of the sexiest videos of all time, which also happens to be one of my favorites,” explained Urie, referring to D’Angelo’s “Untitled (How Does It Feel).”
“Doing an homage to D’Angelo’s classic video seemed like a perfect fit,” added the 26-year-old singer.
In an interview with Global News last month, Urie said he doesn’t try to come up with singles.
“Writing a song to be a single is hard and I don’t like to focus on that because you can get caught up in making something just terrible, which is really easy to do if you’re focused on making it a single,” he said. “It’s more fun when you focus on what excites you musically.”
Urie’s video comes only days after Miley Cyrus released the director’s cut of the video for “Wrecking Ball,” which she has said is an homage to Sinead O’Connor’s “Nothing Compares 2U.”
