Update: You can hear a radio recording below.
Muse‘s song “Survival” has been chosen as the official track of the London 2012 Olympic Games this summer. The song will make its radio premiere tonight and will be available on iTunes tomorrow. The track will be used when athletes enter the stadium, played throughout the venues during the games, the lead up to medal ceremonies, and will also be used by international broadcasters during their coverage of the games.
Singer/guitarist Matt Bellamy stated, “It’s a huge honor to have the track chosen as such a major part of the London 2012 Olympic Games. I wrote it with the Games in mind as it expresses a sense of conviction and determination to win.”
Muse will be releasing their new album The 2nd Law this September and have plans for world tours in support of the release.
