PREMIERE: Panic! at the Disco’s ‘Mercenary’

Panic! at the Disco have bestowed upon us the first full listen of their new song “Mercenary”, which will be part of the Batman: Arkham City album, featuring other artists such as Blaqk Audio, The Damned Things, Coheed and Cambria, and more. Not too shabby, eh?

The whole album drops 10/4, but you can pre-order this business right now on iTunes.

Want to know what that voice in the breakdown is all about? It’s Hugo Strange talking to Batman, and he says:

“How does it feel to stand on the very stones that ran with your parents’ blood? Do you feel sad? Full of rage? Or does that outfit help bury your feelings? Hiding your true self? You’re a truly extraordinary specimen. I look forward to breaking you.”

Do you think Batman ever makes this face under his mask?

Anyway, what do you think of the song?
