It’s finally here, the song that 30 Seconds to Mars launched into space a little under four weeks ago has officially hit the web, just like they promised.
The song, “Up in the Air” first started to receive publicity when the band featuring Jared Leto, brother Shannon and Tomo Miličević, decided to be the second artists to release a song from deep in space. Last year, Will.i.am did something similar releasing a song when the Mars Rover landed on Mars.
Back in February, the band made the trek to Cape Canaveral to watch a CD of their song be launched into to space with a package for those astronauts up in the space center. After that had been done, the band revealed that on March 18 (today) they would go to Houston to chat/have a Q&A session via video chat with astronaut, Tom Marshburn as he received the package.
Without further ado, Echelon members, here’s “Up in the Air” (ignore the continuous ‘I Heart Radio’ plugs):
Even after the premiere of the new song, the band went on to announce even bigger news; the band that probably never sleeps will be releasing a new album titled, Love Lust Faith + Dreams on May 21. The album art and full track listing can be seen below.
