Thirty Seconds to Mars have teased a sampler for their new song ‘Walk On Water’, the first taste of their first album since 2013.
“The last time we put an album out, there were no self driving cars, no fidget spinners and Jon Snow hadn’t even died yet,” Jared Leto said in a statement.
The Thirty Seconds To Mars album follows up ‘Love, Lust, Faith & Dreams’ from 2013. “After four long years, hundreds of days, thousands of hours, gazillions of seconds, we have finally managed to finish a single fucking song,” Leto says. “Whoever thought “soon” would actually be here “now”. With the help of ground-breaking nanotechnology, chatbots and self-driving music software, we have wrangled from the depths of our cold black hearts, some semblance of a song. If you’re still reading this press release and managed to get this far, you should probably get to work or school before you get fired or grounded. If you’re stubborn, like I am, please continue and let me share with you a few words on our brand new single, the ever so subtle and minimalist ode we tenderly call ‘WALK ON WATER’. Of course this entire paragraph is complete and total hogwash but I’m not sure exactly what to say about the song. Honestly, we miss you all. We can’t wait to get back on the road and we couldn’t be more proud to share with you the first single off of our new album. And yes, we have been working on it for four years”.
Album five for Thirty Seconds To Mars will be released on 22 August, 2017.
