  • Encouraged by drummer Shannon Leto and producer Flood, this track was recorded live. Singer/guitarist Jared Leto explained why to Musicradar.com: "Shannon was very adamant that we record this song live. Flood really encouraged us to record things as live as possible, too. So on this track there's very few microphones, me on the piano, Shannon on the bass and Tomo on the guitar. No click tracks. Flood was after what Thirty Seconds To Mars sounds like when it's just three guys standing in a room and playing together, and I think he really captured it. It was great. We'll definitely be doing a lot more of that in the future."
