That’s one small step for Thirty Seconds To Mars, one giant leap for musicians everywhere, as the band prepares to launch their newest single into space.
Tomorrow (March 1) at 10:10 am EST, the band will watch the first copy of “Up In The Air,” off of the band’s fourth album, launch from Cape Canaveral to the International Space Station in the second SpaceX Drag Cargo Capsule. Along with the single, the spacecraft will be carrying over 1,200 pounds of scientific experiments and cargo.
Fans will unfortunately have to wait until March 18, when Jared Leto and the rest of the band visit Mission Control Houston, to actually hear “Up In The Air” from the band’s upcoming fourth album. The band will not only premiere their new song, but will also interview Tom Marshburn, one of the astronauts aboard the space station. All of these events will be broadcasted live online, with more details to be announced regarding where to watch.
“Up In The Air” will be available to download on March 19.
