Songs are inspirational. Through the ages music has spoken and changed the lives of so many people, but recently it seems like everything has been done and originality is a thing of the past.
Thankfully, Thirty Seconds to Mars just released its video for ‘Up in the Air’ and the concept behind it is one of the most original ones we’ve seen in a while. It is out of this world!
The video was actually shot in space by the help of the International Space Station, which took the footage shown in the lyric video. The single was sent into space recently with NASA and SpaceX’s help.
Huffpost explains “‘Up in the Air’ was launched from Cape Canaveral aboard a Falcon 9 rocket, set to land at the International Space Station.”
The concept behind the song’s lyrics is inspirational as well. Jared Leto, the lead singer of the band, explained to MTV that the song is “about power, it’s about control. It’s about getting to a point in your life where you’re ready to let go and move on and become the better version of yourself, the self-actualized version of yourself.”
The song, which was written and recorded in various locations worldwide, is the first single off the upcoming album Love, Lust, Faith and Dreams, due out on May 21.
