article imageRock band 30 Seconds To Mars debuts single in space

Jared Leto's band, 30 Seconds To Mars, have debuted their latest single "Up In The Air" in outer space." The song was sent to the International Space Station for an exclusive listening and will debut on earth Tuesday.
The band wanted an "out of the world" announcement for their new album, Love Lust Faith + Dreams, The Associated Press reports. The album is set to drop May 21.
On March 1, a CD containing the song was launched on a rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida.
"It was amazing to feel it take off," 30 Seconds frontman Jared Leto said in a recent interview. "The noise and the brightness was overwhelming and you're still a mile away."
While the challenge to make this happen was a bit overwhelming, Leto and his bandmates were extremely happy to make it all happen, The Independent reports.
As tremendous of a challenge as it was to send a song into space, the 41-year-old actor-singer said it was nothing compared to being sued for $30 million by Virgin/EMI. The lawsuit was eventually worked out and the band continued working with the label.
30 Seconds To Mars is not the only musical act to premiere music in space. Last summer, rapper premiered his song "Reaching For The Stars" from Mars. It was the first song to debut on another planet.
