But, chances are you did not know it may also wind up being 20 minutes long. This, according to 30STM frontman Jared Leto, who broke that tidbit to MTV News during rehearsals for Sunday’s MTV Europe Music Awards in Madrid.
Not only did Leto appear to be telling the truth, but he also sounded tired enough to back the claim up.
“We’re working really hard and it’s a very ambitious project,” Leto said. “It’s very long right now. It’s clocking in at about 20 minutes, so we’re just editing, editing. I literally brought the editors here to Spain, and they’re at the hotel working right now.”
Leto added that, at this point, he’s spending basically every waking minute working on completion of the video, but even with a team of editors working on it full-time, “Hurricane” is still proving difficult to tame.
“I am [working on it] with [the editors] … I couldn’t do it alone, it’s far too big,” he said. “And I have the help of a great team. They flew here at the last minute and they’re at the hotel waiting for me to finish up here to get back to the edit.”
Before he headed off to rehearse with his band, we asked Leto if Kanye West — who appears on the song and subsequently joined 30STM during their EMA performance — would make an appearance in the “Hurricane” video too. And, much like everything involving the clip, Leto let it be known that a Kanye cameo is still very much a work in progress.
“Ah man, you never know.”
