In a new interview, Brendon confirms that 'Pray For The Wicked' originally had an equally cool, Byron-inspired name.

Panic! At The Disco frontman Brendon Urie has revealed an alternate title for his upcoming sixth album 'Pray For The Wicked'.

Brendon chatted with Buzzfeed recently where he was asked about any titles that didn't make the cut for the new record. He then revealed that the album was originally meant to have a name inspired by the work of legendary poet Lord Byron:

"I was gonna call it like a Lord Byron quote which I thought was really nice...It was 'Fame Is The Thirst Of Youth'. I thought that was a really cool quote. But it's 'Pray For The Wicked' - I just thought that tied in everything actually that I was talking about."

Elsewhere in the interview, Brendon, surrounded by adorable puppies, talks about his friendship with Pete Wentz, his inclusion in the new movie 'Love, Simon' and his love of Broadway musicals.

Check out the full chat in the video below:

Panic! At The Disco's new album 'Pray For The Wicked' is out on June 22nd. The band will headline Reading & Leeds festivals this August.
