Today, award-winning artist Thirty Seconds To Mars, which consists of brothers Jared and Shannon Leto, released their newest single Stuck via Concord Records – listen here. This propulsive single sets the groundwork for a new Thirty Seconds To Mars era.
The single is accompanied by a music video that is a celebration of the human form, minimalist design, high fashion, art and dance. Filled with energy, it focuses on an incredibly unique cast of characters who interpret the song with movement, metaphor and action.
Says Jared “Thanks to my incredibly creative mother, my brother and I were instilled with a love for art and photography from a very young age. The video for STUCK, our first new song in five years, is a love letter to some of my favorite photographers. Artists who made a very deep impact on me like Richard Avedon, Irving Penn, Robert Mapplethorpe, Diane Arbus, Herb Ritts and more. Artists whose work changed the way I saw things and showed me new possibilities at every turn. The video for STUCK is very much a companion piece and a continuation of a journey started with “Up In The Air,” a celebration of art, design, fashion, and the remarkable people who bring them to life. It is a love letter to the power of movement and connection, a testament to the awe-inspiring potential of people who don’t necessarily fit so neatly in – but make the world so much more fascinating. I would like to express my immense gratitude to everyone involved. From the incredibly talented artists and designers to the behind-the-scenes team. All who worked so hard to make it all possible. Your contributions have made this experience an absolutely unforgettable adventure and helped to capture and celebrate the essence of what makes us all unique and exceptional.”
The emphasis for high fashion focuses on looks from FW23 and innovative designers such as Gucci, Ann Demeulemeester, Balmain, Maison Margiela, Raf Simons, Rick Owens and Jean Paul Gaultier among others.
Their sixth studio album, ‘It’s The End Of The World But It’s A Beautiful Day’, will be released this September. Five years following the release of their chart-topping album, ‘America’, Thirty Seconds To Mars is releasing music unlike ever before. Throughout their career, the band has continued to push themselves to evolve and expand. Their new focus is on being simple and concise, with no songs longer than three-and-a-half minutes and an emphasis on Jared’s emotive, straight-from-the-heart vocals.
The lead single and fashion focused music video comes shortly after Jared attended “fashion’s biggest night out” and made his 5th appearance at The Met Gala. Jared attended the ‘Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty’ themed Gala to honor Karl posthumously. Arriving on the carpet with a fun play on Karl’s beloved cat, Choupette, he then transformed to reveal a second Lagerfeld look.
Later this month, Thirty Seconds To Mars will be taking the main stage at BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend and in August, the band will be making their return to Lollapalooza Festival for the first time since 2006. This marks the 3rd time overall the band has taken the stage at Lollapalooza. To continue on their festival streak, Thirty Seconds To Mars will also be playing at the sold-out When We Were Young Festival in Las Vegas in October, with more festival dates to be announced shortly.
