Thirty Seconds To Mars is doing a bit of double duty with its new video, “Walk On Water.”
The song is the first single from the group’s next album, and it will also be part of the upcoming documentary A Day In The Life Of America.
For the latter, the band asked fans from throughout the U.S. and its territories to submit homemade videos from July 4 celebrations to create a “filmed portrait of the country;” The “Walk On Water” video presents a pastiche of these videos, with guest appearances from actor Danny Trejo, basketball star LeBron James, reality celebrity Kylie Jenner and others.
Thirty Seconds has not yet announced a release date for either the documentary or the album — the latter will be its follow-up to 2013’s Love. Lust. Faith And Dreams, which debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200.
