Marvel and “The Hurt Locker” star Jeremy Renner announced his upcoming album “Love and Titanium” in an Instagram post last Wednesday.
“A collection of music we wrote about different milestones in my journey of recovery since Jan. 1 this year,” Renner captioned the post. “‘Love and Titanium’ has been painful, deeply healing, and ultimately cathartic for me to create. I hope I get the courage to share with you all.” The post appeared to partially show the album cover art, accompanied by the word “soon.”
Renner was hospitalized in January after his Sno-Cat, a several thousand pound snow plow, ran him over near his nephew’s Lake Tahoe home. The accident broke eight of his ribs in 14 places, as well as both legs in multiple places, his right clavicle and shoulder. He also suffered injuries to his face and jaw, a collapsed lung and pierced liver.
The album title appears to be a callback to Renner’s ABC News interview in March, his first press appearance following the accident
“I chose to survive. That’s not gonna kill me, no way,” Renner told ABC. “I’ve lost a lot of flesh and bone in this experience, but I’ve been refueled and refilled with love and titanium.”
Renner reportedly refused to allow the accidents to delay his Disney+ series “Rennervations,” which premiered in April. He was able to walk the red carpet with a cane, and has since regained full mobility.
“There is a lot of gifts that I received because of it,” Renner told CNN on Monday. “When you’re tested physically, emotionally, spiritually, in every way, and then to come through it, that’s something hard to explain.
Previous works by Renner include 2019 singles “Nomad” and “Sign” and his 2020 EP “The Medicine.”
