Since 2007 actor and musician Jared Leto has been the frontman of rock group 30 Seconds to Mars, who have just released their fourth album, ’Love Lust Faith + Dreams’. While Jared admits that working on the album has been a transformative process for the band, he prefers to be inspired by contemporary art and travel than music, even admitting to recording the first part of this album in a portable studio in India. We catch up with him to talk paying homage to art and design, working with Dita Von Teese,the use of Damien Hirst paintings and why Phillip Toledano is fantastic.
‘LOVE, LUST, FAITH + DREAMS’ IS YOUR FOURTH ALBUM, BUT YOU’VE SAID BEFORE THAT YOU’RE NEVER CERTAIN ABOUT YOUR FUTURE, AND ARE OPEN TO THE POSSIBILITY THAT THE BAND COULD END AT ANY TIME. HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT YOUR WORK TODAY?
‘Love Lust Faith + Dreams’ was released just days ago, we are more excited about this new chapter within our lives than we have been about many before it.
WHAT MOMENTS STOOD OUT FOR YOU DURING THE MAKING OF THE ALBUM?
I think discovery, if you push yourself enough you can breakthrough new ground and I believe we’ve done that with ‘Love Lust Faith + Dreams’. It’s a transformative album for us, I think people are going to be quite surprised, it’s a great departure.
