Listen to 'Feels Like Christmas'
Panic! At The Disco have released an original Christmas song over the years and 2017 sees them continue the tradition.
Titled ‘Feels Like Christmas’. the song is an upbeat number which sees frontman Brendon Urie sing, “It’s like Christmas, nearly every day / It’s like Christmas, we’re like children playing / … When I’m with you, when I’m with you.”
In the song’s YouTube description, Urie wrote a note to fans. “Thank you all for making this year my favorite so far. Through the hard times and the beautiful moments, I’m glad we’re always there to lift each other up. I’m so excited for the new year and what’s to come.”

Urie has had a jam-packed year, with the release of Panic! At The Disco live album ‘All My Friends, We’re Glorious’ which was recorded during their North American headlining tour earlier this year.
He also starred in Broadway’s ‘Kinky Boots’ as shoe factory owner Charlie Price.
His involvement in the musical was announced back in April. The musical follows Price as he partners with drag queen Lola (played by J. Harrison Ghee) to save his father’s failing shoe factory by manufacturing a line of high-heeled boots.
The musical version was adapted from the 2005 film, which starred Joel Edgerton and Chiwetel Ejiofor. The songs in the musical version are written by Cyndi Lauper.
Speaking at the time of the announcement, Urie said how he has always dreamt of performing on broadway. “I used to dream about this day,” he says.
“When I saw [Kinky Boots], I knew I wanted to be a part of it. It moved me so much, that end moment, the finale, I felt like I wanted to get up, shout and celebrate life.”
“It resonated within me, and I wanted to be a part of it,” he added. “The message is so clear, it’s so relatable. I hope people feel that passion that I felt that was like a fire inside my chest.”
