Brendon Urie, lead singer and only official member of the band Panic! At the Disco has found the Disney princess in himself. He is featured singing “Into The Unknown” at the end of the new Disney movie Frozen 2.
Panic! At the Disco fans have been with Brendon Urie throughout all his different styles of music from emo, to rock/alternative, to pop. When Brendon Urie announced he had a cover song from the movie Frozen 2, his fans became even more obsessed with him. When I heard the news myself, I automatically set a reminder on my phone to check it out on November 15, 2019. But to mine and every person who was looking forward to this song’s surprise, the song came out nearly two weeks before it was supposed to, which was before any other Frozen 2 songs.
November 4, 2019 was the day Brendon Urie released his cover of Idina Menzel's song, “Into the Unknown” from the Frozen 2 soundtrack. His song is featured during the end credits of the movie. November 22, 2019 Urie also released his music video for the song. Brendon Urie definitely took a turn on the song and his cover is a lot better than the original. This song not only makes his amazing vocals stand out, but “he makes it sound easy to sing those high notes,” says Idina Menzel herself.
The first thing I noticed when listening to the song is how from the very start, his high notes seem almost impossible for a human to do. It really did give me goosebumps just listening to it. In the song, Elsa is almost having an argument with herself inside of her head. The highness in Brendon Urie's voice and his tone really help make the altercation come to life. Uries background in singing in musicals like Broadway's Kinky Boots definitely gave him an advantage. He hits all the right notes in all the right places.
Overall, the song isn’t something I would listen to all the time. The lyrics are more for kids and is meant to go along with the storyline of Frozen 2. However, Brendon Urie’s powerful and energized vocals in this song are unbelievable. He really made this his song by taking away how slow paced and soft spoken Idina Menzel sang it. I am looking forward to listening to what he comes up with next.
