Written and recorded around the world from Europe, to India, to the band’s studio in California, ‘LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS’ was
produced by Jared Leto with previous collaborator Steve Lillywhite (U2, The Rolling Stones, Peter Gabriel) co-producing four of the twelve tracks.
Jared says that “this is more than an evolution, it’s a brand new beginning. Creatively, we’ve gone to an entirely new place, which is exciting, unexpected, and incredibly inspiring.”
In partnership with NASA, THIRTY SECONDS TO MARS launched the first single from the new album into space. Literally. The first copy of ‘Up In The Air’ was recently carried aboard the SpaceX cargo mission to the space station. The single had its groundbreaking premiere from the astronauts in orbit 230 miles above Earth and THIRTY SECONDS TO MARS stood by at Mission Control Houston while the track was played. They did a Q&A with Tom Marshburn, one of the astronauts aboard the space station, with fans contributing questions for the chat.
The album cover for ‘LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS’ features ‘Isonicotinic Acid Ethyl Ester’ (2010 – 2011) from internationally renowned artist Damien Hirst’s Spot Paintings series. A second Hirst work, which is from the Colour Charts series, appears on the CD itself.
LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS is the band’s fourth studio record. It follows their acclaimed LP ‘This Is War’, which they toured for two
years, selling out arenas around the globe and playing over 311 shows in nearly 60 countries on six continents to three million people – breaking the Guinness World Record® for the longest ever concert tour by a rock band.
THIRTY SECONDS TO MARS – comprising Jared Leto and Shannon Leto as well as Tomo Milicevic – have sold over 5 million albums worldwide and the band’s videos have more than 300 million views on YouTube. The group have received numerous awards, including a dozen MTV awards worldwide, a Billboard Music award and honours from NME, Kerrang! and Fuse.
Artifact, a documentary about the band’s battle with their record label, won the People’s Choice documentary award at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival and the Audience Award at the 2012 Gotham Independent Film Awards and it was also an official selection of the 2013 SXSW film festival.
