Although the release was pretty exciting, the song itself may excite fans more as they wait on the band's fourth album. The song is upbeat and contains a lot of electronic-rock elements, featuring more of a dance sound than they've had previously. It's the band's first album since a lawsuit was ended with the label EMI. The band has said it's a new beginning for them and 'Up in the Air' is indeed ambitious and a little different. Though some may consider the single too mainstream sounding, 'Up in the Air' is as hard-rocking as 'The Kill' and as emotional as 'Kings and Queens.' Yet, here the band sings about fallen love and tempting fate. "I've been up in the air/out of my head/stuck in a moment of emotion I've destroyed.'
'Love, Lust, Faith, and Dreams' is expected to be released this May. Following the album's release, 30 Seconds to Mars will begin a world tour. Listen to 'Up in the Air' right now on AOL Radio's New Alternative First.
