“LA Devotee” is the fourth single off Panic! at the Disco’s fifth studio album "Death of a Bachelor". The song focuses on a person who embodies the idea of the LA archetype—one who is all-consumed by materialism but who also personifies the glitz, glamour and fantasy-like quality of living there. Brendon talked about the song in an iHeartRadio interview: “LA Devotee” is a love letter to Los Angeles. I’ve lived here now for just over seven years, coming up on eight years, and it’s my new home. I’m from here to Vegas quite a bit, but I found a new, deeper appreciation for the city. The things I sing about in that song, the black magic of Mulholland Drive, swimming pools under desert skies, it’s all the things I picture about LA that I really fell in love with that took me time to appreciate, and that was really what I wanted to talk about. Similar to Billy Joel’s 1983 classic “Uptown Girl,” this song dissects, criticizes, but also marvels at the allure of a wealthy lifestyle. On September 22, 2016, the official music video for the song (which features Noah Schnapp) was released on Fueled By Ramen’s YouTube channel. When asked about the process of the casting of the music video with Coup de Main, Urie explained: "The director Brendan Walter were talking ideas and I was just stuck. I was like, ‘I don’t really know what to do? I don’t want to copy the lyrics literally , I don’t want to do a literal video, so let’s figure out ideas.’ And Brendan Walter came back to me with, ‘Hey, what about a cult?’ I was like, ‘Fuck yeah! I love that!’ I love any religious imagery just from growing up that way. And then the next day I think, we got an email from Noah Schnapp and his people with, ‘Hey, I’ve been a fan of Panic’s for a little bit, I would love to do something in the future if you’ve got anything.’ So we e-mailed him immediately. ‘Hey man, we’re doing a video if you wanna do it for the song?’ He was like, ‘Cool, I love that song, let’s do it!’ He was really cool, one of the most talented people I’ve ever worked with, so it was really nice to be a part of it – and just being a fan of his and ‘Stranger Things’ in general! What a special thing to have!"
