30 Seconds to Mars Will Send New Single Into Space

30 Seconds to Mars announced that their new single will be launched into space tomorrow on a rocket departing Cape Canaveral, Florida to send supplies to the International Space Station.

Attentive readers will recall that ZZ Top pulled a similar stunt in 2011 when they sent the first copy of their single “Flyin’ High” to the International Space Station with astronaut Michael Fossum. Continuing the trend that singles released in space should have names that reflect the fact, 30 Seconds to Mars’s new single is entitled “Up in the Air.”

For fans back on Earth, the single will be released on March 19, preceding the band’s fourth album, due to be released later this year. This release will be their first since 2009′s This Is War.

The band will conduct a live streaming interview with astronaut Tom Marshburn from Mission Control in Houston, Texas on March 18, in which he will presumably tell them whether he thinks the single is any good.
