Jeremy Renner is using music to contemplate the events of the past year in his life.
The 52-year-old Marvel actor took to Instagram last week to announce his upcoming music release, a project titled “Love and Titanium.” This musical endeavor will chronicle the “different milestones” he has reached since his snowplow accident on January 1.
“A collection of music we wrote about different milestones in my journey of recovery since Jan 1st this year,” the actor expressed. “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.”

Renner offered a sneak peek of the cover art, which showcased an emblem bearing the project’s title. He concealed most of the artwork with a heart emoji and included the word “soon” at the image’s upper section.
In the post, he mentioned several individuals, including Diane Sawyer, who conducted the first public interview with Renner where he discussed his accident.
On January 1, Renner suffered over 30 bone fractures and underwent numerous surgeries when he was struck by a 7-ton snowplow. Subsequent to his hospitalization, he has consistently shared updates with his fans about his ongoing healing process.
Although the public is most familiar with the two-time Oscar nominee for his acting career, Renner has also made a name for himself as a musician. He has released multiple singles since 2018 and launched two albums in 2020.
His most recent musical endeavor involved composing and performing “Rebel on the Road” for the soundtrack of his Disney+ reality series, Rennervations, which made its debut in April.
In 2019, Renner had a conversation with PEOPLE where he shared insights into his musical journey. He disclosed that his initial attraction was to music before acting, and at a young age, he self-taught himself to play the piano, guitar, and drums.
“My family was my first love, and then music,” he revealed at the time. “Acting came into my brain around 20. Music has always been my first love as far as something other than my family.”
The Avengers star also mentioned that he creates music in his home studio located in Los Angeles. He conveyed to PEOPLE that one thing that “makes [music] greater is that I get to stay here in my home and do it and get to be around the people I love.”
In 2019, prior to “Love and Titanium,” Renner informed PEOPLE that “there’s a bunch of music written, and that’s a future thing. I’m happy to share music now, which I wasn’t before.”
