Watch Panic! at the Disco cover Dua Lipa in BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge


Panic! at the Disco performed in BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge earlier today, delivering an unlikely cover of Dua Lipa’s ‘IDGAF’.

The pop-punk icons, led by Brendon Urie, gave their own unique take on the track, which saw Lipa’s pop sound being swapped with Urie’s distinctly velvety vocals.

As well as their own take on Dua Lipa, the band also delivered a live take on recent single ‘Say Amen (Saturday Night)’.

Check out both performances below.

Meanwhile, Panic are gearing up to release their sixth album ‘Pray For The Wicked’, which will arrive on June 22.

Earlier this year, Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz claimed that he had heard the record – and was full of praise for the band’s new direction.

Speaking to Rock Sound, Wentz described ‘Pray For The Wicked’ as “like ‘Death Of A Bachelor’ on steroids”.

Wentz pointed to Panic! frontman Brendon Urie’s recent role in Broadway play Kinky Boots as having an impact on the album.

“From doing Broadway and stuff he’s figured out who he was and amplified it,” Wentz said.

“The songs are, like, bonkers. And I think he did some stuff with [American DJ] Dillon Francis and it’s like… bonkers.”

Speaking about the new album, Urie said: “After being away in New York for months doing Kinky Boots, I just wanted to hang out at home when I got back to LA. I was so revved up that I asked some friends to come over to my home studio to help me write about all the incredible things I’ve experienced the last couple of years.”

“‘Pray For The Wicked’ is my ‘thank you’ to our fans and the most fun I’ve ever had making album.”
