It's the End of the World but It's a Beautiful Day is the upcoming sixth studio album by American rock band Thirty Seconds to Mars, scheduled to be released on September 15, 2023, through Concord.
Sitting down for NME in November 2021, Leto revealed that they had penned 200 tracks for their upcoming record. Much of the material was inspired by 1970s and 1980s electronic music. He explained that the band took advantage of their time in lockdown. At the time in 2021, Jared said that they were awaiting "the right opportunity" to release it. On another occasion, in March 2022, Leto stated that the band was sitting on "two albums, maybe three, worth of material", that took him "a month or two to get into the swing of things". Once again, he pointed out the fact that the two were confined to one place was a unique situation. About a year later, on April 6, 2023, Leto announced that they were "getting ready" to release new music.
The band shared a teaser of a new song titled "Stuck" with a 14-second grayscale preview clip on May 5, 2023. The "powerful, high-energy track" was released as the lead single on May 8, 2023, with an accompanying music video directed by Jared Leto himself. To Leto, song and video signify "a celebration of art, design, fashion, and the remarkable people who bring them to life". Release of the song was accompanied by the announcement of the album, their first in over five years. It was made available for pre-order in various CD and vinyl editions.
