Thirty Seconds To Mars Premieres New Song “Stuck” on BBC Radio 1
American rock band Thirty Seconds to Mars, consisting of Jared Leto (vocals/guitar) and Shannon Leto (drums), is back. The band premiered a new song “Stuck” on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Clara Amfo.
The song is their first music in five years since the 2018 album “America”.
Also, the track is the first single off of their upcoming sixth studio album “It's The End Of The World But It's A Beautiful Day”, which is set to be released on September 16, 2023.
The track was written by Jared Leto, JKash, Ammar Malick, and John Ryan. Produced by John Ryan, Jared Leto, Shannon Leto, Ammar Malick, and Oscar Neidhardt.
“I wrote it from the perspective of a narrator who simply can't help himself from plunging headfirst into what will likely be a doomed romance. It's about knowing you need to get out but simply being unable to, whether that's from fear or comfort or confusion, hence being 'Stuck.'”
He told Clara Amfo, “I'm gonna steal that and then take it with me. That's a good way to describe it. It's so we wanted a song to come back with a lot of optimism and energy. It was exciting working on this song for the past few years. It was born into the days of COVID and really is just about kind of breaking free and celebrating life.”
- The accompanying music video was directed by Jared Leto.
He said of the video, “Thanks to my incredibly creative mother, my brother and I were instilled with a love for art and photography from a very young age. The video for STUCK, our first new song in five years, is a love letter to some of my favorite photographers. Artists who made a very deep impact on me like Richard Avedon, Irving Penn, Robert Mapplethorpe, Diane Arbus, Herb Ritts and more. Artists whose work changed the way I saw things and showed me new possibilities at every turn. The video for STUCK is very much a companion piece and a continuation of a journey started with 'Up In The Air,' a celebration of art, design, fashion, and the remarkable people who bring them to life. It is a love letter to the power of movement and connection, a testament to the awe-inspiring potential of people who don't necessarily fit so neatly in - but make the world so much more fascinating. I would like to express my immense gratitude to everyone involved. From the incredibly talented artists and designers to the behind-the-scenes team. All who worked so hard to make it all possible. Your contributions have made this experience an absolutely unforgettable adventure and helped to capture and celebrate the essence of what makes us all unique and exceptional.”
The band will be taking the main stage at BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend later this month.
Jared Leto said, “We're excited to be a part of it. And thank you guys so much. It is a huge day for us to play the song the very, very first time anywhere in the world. Right here on BBC Radio One. It's an honor. We're excited. It'll definitely be in the set. Maybe we'll play it twice. Because we're so excited to finally play this song for people it's been a long time.”
