30 Seconds To Mars are set to release their brand new album, 'Love Lust Faith + Dreams', on May 20. The album was co-produced by the band's frontman Jared Leto alongside Steve Lillywhite.
Of the LP, Leto has said: "This is more than an evolution, it's a brand new beginning. Creatively, we've gone to an entirely new place, which is exciting, unexpected, and incredibly inspiring."
The album artwork features the piece 'Isonicotinic Acid Ethyl Ester' by Damien Hirst. Another Hirst piece from the Colour Charts series will appear on the CD itself.
Last month 'Up In The Air' was launched from Cape Canaveral to the International Space Station in the SpaceX Dragon Cargo Capsule. For more information on the expedition, visit: NASA.gov.
