Jared Leto's Thirty Seconds to Mars are white-hot right now. They premiered a song ("Up in the Air") from space and cast everyone from other artists to Olympians in teasers for the track's music video. But the band isn't letting up: They're debuting a lyric video for "The Race" exclusively on HuffPost Entertainment.
"'LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS' isn't just an evolution, its a brand new beginning for us," Leto told The Huffington Post about their forthcoming album. "'The Race' is a song about the madness of love, life, the insanity of dreams, and about how - at times - prey can become the predator."
Heady stuff, but nothing unfamiliar to the band's army of intensely passionate fans. Leto has said he recorded over 70 songs for "LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS" before paring them down to the album's final 12. "My songs must feel like discarded lovers because I'm continuously abandoning time," he said. "But that feels better than being sued." (EMI sued the band for $30 million in 2008 for breach of contract, a dispute that the parties have since resolved.)
