JARED LETO CONFIRMS NEW 30 SECONDS TO MARS ALBUM IS FINISHED
Singer says he mastered it two days ago
30 Seconds To Mars frontman Jared Leto has confirmed that the band have finished their new album.
He said that the record has been mastered, but the band still haven’t decided yet when the release date will be.
Speaking to MTV, Leto said, “This is the first time I’m really talking about the album, and when you talk about these things it helps you put them into perspective. I just mastered it two days ago, and we’re still toying with it, but it’s been turned in and it’s finished.
“I wrote and recorded about 70 songs for this album, and I think there’s a feeling that all of us in the band have that, especially after touring as long as we did last time, that this is a really important album for us; it’s a critical album for us.”
He continued, “It’s an evolution, this album is more of who we are than we have ever been before, and we’ve gone to an entirely new place, which is incredibly exciting. And it’s provocative at the same time, because changes bring new opportunities, new challenges, a chance to learn.”
Leto went on to talk about the release date, saying that it was ‘TBD’ (to be decided)’. ‘The Kill’ singer told MTV, “So much of the stuff is TBD, but we’ve shot a video, we’ve launched a single, we’ve finished an album, we have the most incredible things to share with our fans. It’s brand-new territory for us, both musically and creatively.”

Speaking to Kerrang! magazine previously, Leto described the album as ‘intimate’ and ‘dark’.
He said, “It’s at times the most intimate, most bombastic and darkest record we’ve ever done. It also has some songs that are the biggest and most celebratory.
“This is a whole new beginning for us. We’re still 30 Seconds to Mars; we’re never going to write a pop album per se. I think that you can explore dark territory without having a dark life.”
