Jared Leto showed off his toned physique in a new Instagram post containing tropical-themed throwback photos and announced the release date of his upcoming single on Wednesday. 

The House Of Gucci actor, 51, who recently flaunted his muscular frame in a mirror selfie, excitedly revealed that a new track from his band, Thirty Seconds To Mars, will be released next month on May 8. 

The singer shared a close-up snap that had been taken from a past trip as he stood under the bright sun wearing an eye-catching, blue and pink-patterned shirt which he chose to leave unbuttoned. 

In the caption of the post, the star penned to his nearly 11 million followers, ‘Ok you win. Our brand new single comes out MAY 8th!!!’ 

‘Can’t believe we are so close to putting out new music. Exciting and nerve-racking and fills me with gratitude,’ the performer gushed to his fans.

The Suicide Squad actor explained that, ‘I don’t take vacations much but I saw these pics and might need a little escape soon esp after the release of the new music and video. This one almost killed me. Can’t wait to show you all!’ 

Social media users flocked to the comment section in celebration of the news, including the main Instagram page for the rock band, which was formed back in 1998, that simply wrote, ‘Mars is coming.’ 

Leto also added an additional message of his own, and wrote out, ‘May 8th. Are you ready??’ but didn’t reveal further details of the title of the song. 

In a slew of other snaps added into the latest Instagram carousel, Jared shared a throwback photo of himself enjoying a day of snorkeling in the wavy, blue water. 

Another showed the star flashing a smile as he soaked up the sun wearing a wet suit and a straw hat to not only protect his eyes, but also his face from the bright sunshine. 

The singer, who is notably an avid rock climber, also showed himself enjoying a bit of the sport as he climbed up a small, rocky cliff that bordered the clear water below him. 

Jared had previously opened up about a near death experience he had faced in 2020 while climbing in Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area in Las Vegas. 

In March 2022, he opened up about his passion and the challenges that it could bring during an interview with Men’s Health.

‘It’s hard to explain because you’re up there having a good time, but it’s full on for a couple of hours. You’re singing and running around, you have so much adrenaline, and you’re performing at your limit,’ he explained. 

‘Your heart is pounding outta your chest, you’re dripping sweat, and you’re exhilarated, but you’re working your body in a really intense way.’ 

Another photo showed Leto towards the top of the large rock as he victoriously neared the ledge. 

Other pictures had captured stunning scenery and nature, including the crystal clear blue water at the tropical destination, as well as a colorful sunset that reflected on the dark water and outlined the clouds in the sky. 

Jared had a bit of humorous fun in the last snap, which showed the actor holding up what appeared to be a beach shovel while making a dramatic pose as the sun’s rays shone down on him. 

Aside from thrilling vacation plans in the near future, especially with summer just around the corner, the star also will be taking time to put focus back on his music career. 

His last single was a collaboration with Illenium two years earlier in 2021 with the track titled, Wouldn’t Change A Thing.

Earlier on Monday, The Kill hitmaker teased his fans and followers on Instagram that he was spending, ‘Late nights in the studio,’ and added the hashtags, ‘#newalbum #soon.’ 

During an interview with iHeartMedia’s ALT 98.7 FM at the 2023 ALTer Ego Festival in January, the Thirty Seconds To Mars singer had also hinted that music was on its way this year. ‘It could be a song, it could be an album, it could be a tour, it could be the whole kitten caboodle.’ 

On whether he was nervous to start releasing music again, Leto admitted, ‘I mean not really nervous, more excited to be honest. By the time we’re done making an album, we’re ready to go back on the road.’ 

He then excitedly added, ‘We’re ready to play the new songs. It’s exciting to play new songs.’
