Thirty Seconds to Mars’ Jared Leto paid tribute to several artists we recently lost with a five song medley as part of a BBC Radio 1 session at the Live Lounge. That performance included: Prince’s “Purple Rain,” David Bowie’s “Heroes,” George Michael’s “Freedom,” Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun” and Linkin Park’s “Crawling.”
Thirty Seconds To Mars have premiered a lyric video for their new song “Walk on Water.” Check it out below:
The band said the following about the clip:
“Everything you are about to see we filmed on a single day in the United States of America. July 4th, 2017.
Over 10,000 people submitted footage of a single day including 92 of our professional crews. They filmed across the country in all fifty states plus Puerto Rico and D.C. and captured a portrait of this country that is absolutely beautiful, challenging and unforgettable.
A very small selection of that footage you see here. The rest will be part of a documentary film (directed by Jared Leto) that is a companion piece to our brand new album.
The album. The film. The tour.
Thirty Seconds To Mars.”
Jared Leto also added the following about the song itself:
“‘Walk on Water’ is a song for all of us. It’s a song about freedom, about persistence, about change and about fighting for what you believe in. It is a call to arms but also full of all the optimism and hope that is such an integral part of the American Dream.”
