"High Hopes" is a song by Panic! at the Disco released on May 23, 2018 as the second single from their sixth studio album, Pray for the Wicked, through Fueled by Ramen and DCD2 Records.[2] The song was written and produced by Jake Sinclair and Jonas Jeberg, and co-written by Brendon Urie, Jenny Owen Youngs, Lauren Pritchard, Sam Hollander, William Lobban-Bean, Taylor Parks, and Ilsey Juber; with additional production by Jonny Coffer. It was serviced to alternative radio on July 31, 2018, and impacted hot adult contemporary radio on August 27, 2018, and US pop radio the following day.[3] The music video was also released on August 27.

The song has reached number five on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming the band's highest-charting song on the chart. It has also reached the top ten in Australia and Germany and the top twenty in Ireland, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom, becoming their highest charting single worldwide. This song is also included on the NHL 19 video game, by EA Sports.

Background[edit]

Following the success of Death of a Bachelor, Urie was granted the rest of 2017 from the band's record label, Fueled by Ramen. However, Urie felt compelled to continue writing music during his time off. The writing process began a month before Urie made his debut in Kinky Boots when he wrote the chorus of "High Hopes". Urie stated that writing the record took about four months total in the span of a year and a half.

Music video[edit]

The audio track was uploaded to Panic! at the Disco's official YouTube channel on the same day of its release, on May 23, 2018. An official music video for the song was uploaded on August 27, 2018. As of November 2018, the music video has surpassed 72 million views. The video was filmed in the Downtown area of Los Angeles, California primarily at 705 West 9th Street.

Reception[edit]

Paste magazine described it as having "a blaring brass section" and "crisp vocals".[4] Rolling Stone described it as "upbeat" and having "punchy horns".[5]

Commercial performance[edit]

"High Hopes" has peaked at number five on the Billboard Hot 100, making it their highest-charting song, exceeding the peak of "I Write Sins Not Tragedies", which reached number seven.[6] Also in the United States, it reached number one on the Radio Songs airplay chart, marking their first leader there. Worldwide, the song has charted highly, reaching number seven in Australia and number twelve in the United Kingdom, also becoming their highest charting song in those countries.
