Four years since Thirty Seconds to Mars‘ Love, Lust, Faith and Dreams, the band returns with a charged new single “Walk On Water” off the highly anticipated upcoming album.
Featuring crowd-sampled vocals, the lyric video is a compilation of footage captured by over 10,000 fans and professional crew on July 4th, 2017. An initiative by the band to capture “a portrait of this country that is absolutely beautiful, challenging and unforgettable.” We can expect additional footage to be featured in a documentary film to be released as a companion piece to the upcoming album.
“After four long years, hundreds of days, thousands of hours, gazillions of seconds, we have finally managed to finish a single fu**ing song. Whoever thought “soon” would actually be here “now”. With the help of groundbreaking 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 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 couldn’t be more proud to share this, the first single off of our new album, with you.” — Jared Leto
