We've got high hopes for this one.
Panic! At The Disco are set to cover one of the biggest songs from The Greatest Showman soundtrack.
The behemoth soundtrack, which has been streamed over 3 billion times (!!!), is being re-released in as a 'Reimagined' edition, which will see famous artists cover songs from the film.
Panic! will take on the film's opening number 'The Greatest Show' while Pink, Kelly Clarkson, Years & Years and others will also feature. 'This Is Me', the breakout song, will be sung by the original singer Keala Settle, with Kesha and Missy Elliott jumping on the track too. The record will drop November 16th.
Brendon Urie told Variety the backstory to his involvement in the project. The song was actually initially offered to Brendon for Panic!'s latest album, but it ended up being featured on the film soundtrack instead.
"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."
