When Thirty Seconds to Mars confirmed that they would release new music soon, fans should have expected that it would take some time. On Thursday (Jan. 25), the California-founded band finally unleashed another new song from their much-anticipated, and still untitled, fifth studio album. Taking to social media earlier this week, the trio warned the Echelon (their fan club) that they would finally unleash a new track before the week concluded.
As promised, the band unveiled their new single, “Dangerous Night.” Heading over to Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 program, frontman Jared Leto premiered the new song while also revealing in the interview that the song was record a mere four days before. Also noted by the band, the song was written by both Jared and Shannon Leto and was recorded at the International Centre for the Advancement of the Arts and Sciences of Sound in Los Angeles.

“Dangerous Night” will join “Walk on Water” on Thirty Seconds to Mars’ new record. While the band has not confirmed the name of the new record, posts on social media are claiming that the album will be titled America. If the record does in fact end up being titled America, it would not come as much of a surprise to fans.
Last year, Thirty Seconds to Mars made it their mission to collect as many photographs and videos to capture a day in the life of an American on the Fourth of July. Eventually, a lot of those submitted videos and photographs were featured in the group’s music video for “Walk on Water.” As per the band, the rest of the videos and photographs will be featured in the group’s upcoming documentary, “A Day in the Life of America.”
The new record will be the follow-up to the group’s 2013 release, Love, Lust, Faith and Dreams.
