Every word in the title of Thirty Seconds To Mars new album, LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS, is mentioned throughout each of its 12 songs. In the case of the band’s first single, “Up In The Air,” two of the words were used: love and lust. Along with another word that is not so safe for work.
Leto, who whispered the obscenity, explained to Radio.com that the context of this particular four-lettered word is used “more as just an expression than an act,” but helps explore the sexuality that is expressed throughout their fourth album, out May 21.
But as for why they picked these four words in particular, Leto said, “[they] really sum up the record in a really pointed way. It’s a new beginning for us. It’s an entirely new chapter of our lives.”
The singer and his brother Shannon, along with guitarist Tomo Miličević, found that this new chapter left them pleasantly confused.
