30 Seconds to Mars have debuted their new track "Conquistador" with a slick new lyrics video, Gigwise reports.
The song is the second to be heard from the band's upcoming new album "Love Lust Faith + Dreams," following the release of "Up in the Air" - and both tracks were produced by Steve Lillywhite, who has also worked with Morrissey, the Rolling Stones and Talking Heads among others.
"Conquistador" is definitely more of a rock song than "Up in the Air," and a return to form for the band. Featuring lines such as "We will rise again," and "I am the best she claimed and more; a battle-scarred conquistador," the lyrics are cliche but Jared Leto's vocals manage to pull them off.
The song has already divided fans, with one commenting, "This new album seems to have so much energy. The evolution of 30STM has been brilliant. I don't love every song they've ever made, but each album delivers several pure wow moments."
However, a different fan wrote, "I find it hard to believe this could be liked more than 'Up in the Air.' The lyrics are just so forced and contrived. Guitar hook is decent, but the overuse of lyrics and general 'meh' factor of the whole track really makes me not so hot on this one. The 'This is War' album was great in my book, and 'Up in the Air' reminds me a lot of it. More of that please."
