Love, Lust, Faith and Dreams is an album about exactly those four things.
It's a concept record not a traditional narrative, but a concept record about what I think the four elements of life itself
the equivalent of earth, wind, water and fire.
I think that love, lust, faith and dreams are four things that you can't live without, they are essential ingredients in life itself, and this is an examination of those four things and how the interplay between them, the experience of them exists for me and for us in our lives as I think that this album is transformative and that it's not just a rock record and I do believe that
I think that it's more expensive than... it's not just guitars, bass and drums.
It's a quite bit more than that so. And that's what we set out to do.
It doesn't have to be bigger, it can be smaller as we think that this album is a new beginning.
It feels like our last album This Is War was the end of an era and this is the beginning of another, a good place to be when you've made four albums.
We sent our song to space because we wanted to celebrate this chapter of our lives, we wanted to do something different, we wanted to dream bigger and it was the experience of our lifetime.
I'm so glad that we did.
We worked with a wonderful group of people, people that are dedicated to spending their lives to make the impossible possible.
I don't know what future holds, we're so focused right now on Love, Lust, Faith and Dreams.
It just came out four weeks ago and it's getting a great response.
We're really happy about that, we feel really fortunate to have so many commited passionate people around the world that are supporting us, that believe.
It's really wonderful because when you make music, you make things, you make art and you share with people.
It's a conversation, so it's nice to have a two way conversation... I mean if I had one thing to say I would say
thank you and we love you guys.
What is faith?Some years ago I didn't know what faith was.
Some years ago I met Mars.
Some years ago I changed my mind.
Some years ago I found my Faith.
What I've learnt from then on is that it's really strange how things change.
I used to think faith was just something related to god,
I used to think there could never be something else above religious things that could fit perfectly with this word: faith.
I was very wrong.
But what does Faith really mean to me?
It's something you completly trust in.
And you don't know why or at least you cannot find a way to express it.
Something you love and makes you smile even in the saddest moment.
Something that's always around in your life
even if it's not
you always find and see it in someways (even the strangest one).
It's something you can always count on.
Something that makes you go forward
gives you the strenght to get up
everytime you fall apart.
Something that makes you dream
Something that makes you think that
it doesn't matter how strange your dreams are
you should follow them and try to
make them be your reality.
It's something that
is always there for you
when there's no one else.
Even when you don't deserve it.
And if you have Faith
let Faith influence and inspire your life
you will always find a good feedback around the corner.
You will always find the good side even if there isn't.
I've found my Faith in MARS.
And no, I'm not talking about the band or the music itself.
I mean the attitude, the sense of life and belonging and the message behind Art.
Desert isn’t calling.
The emptiness of space.
The hunger of a lion
is written on your face.
A maniac to love song.
Found a new direction
'cause I have lost my way.
