Clip accompanies the discharge of the group’s seventh album, Viva Las Vengeance
Viva Las Vengeance! As Panic! at the Disco launched its seventh studio album, the group’s frontman Brendan Urie starred as “the Duke” within the choreo-filled, medieval times-themed video for “Unhappy Clown.”
The Brendan Walter-directed video sees Urie displaying off his greatest dance strikes and belting musical theater-ready vocals for a big powdered wig-wearing crowd. A personality named Maggie (seemingly the topic of the brand new album’s track “One thing About Maggie”) then joins because the queen, difficult Urie and his crew to a dance battle.
“Go away me alone (A pagliaccio triste)/Go away me alone (He not so molto bene),” he sings within the refrain. “Your majesty’s magnificent, my tragedy is imminent/Although I’m smiling, I’m crying/I shall win/Vincero.”
The video then devolves right into a blurry night time occasion with flashing lights and appears of confusion earlier than Urie wakes up in an empty fort and sees Maggie kissing one other man the subsequent morning. Urie then drops his wig and hops into the ocean to cope with his despair and imagines himself leaving Maggie within the sea.
“The Duke is making his grand entrance and says it’s time to bop,” the group captioned the video on YouTube.
“Unhappy Clown” is the tenth observe on the pop-rock group’s new album. Viva Las Vengeance follows the discharge of singles “Middle of a Breakup,” “Don’t Let the Light Go Out,” “Local God,” and the album’s title track. To have a good time the album, Panic! is occurring tour beginning Sept. 8, alongside Marina and Jake Wesley Rogers.
