Muse Make ‘Survival’ the Official London 2012 Olympics Song
Muse are on their way back with new music and they’ve teamed with the London 2012 Olympics to make one track the event’s official theme song.
The song is called ‘Survival,’ and after several days of rumors (which included the titles ‘Unsustainable,’ ‘Supremacy,’ and ‘The Award’ being tossed out), the official announcement has been made.
The band states, “We are very excited to announce that a Muse song, ‘Survival,’ has been selected by the London Olympic committee to be the main official song for the London 2012 Olympic Games. Matt [Bellamy] wrote the song with the Olympics in mind. It’s about total conviction and pure determination to win.”
The song will reportedly be played throughout the Games. It’s been selected to soundtrack the athletes entering the stadium, in the lead up to the medal ceremonies, and also as the theme for the international TV coverage. The group will debut the song later today on the BBC and will make it available on iTunes and at their Muse.mu store immediately after.
Muse are currently working on their follow-up to ‘The Resistance’ album. ‘The 2nd Law’ is expected in September.
