30 Seconds to Mars, 'Up in the Air' -- New Song


Virgin

30 Seconds to Mars has released their lead single from their upcoming album, 'Love, Lust, Faith and Dreams.' The song was literally launched 'Up in the Air' as it was made available for the first time aboard an International Space Station spacecraft. The single has now been made public, but first premiered on NASA TV and was first heard by astronauts of the Expedition 34 and Expedition 35 crew.

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.
