Muse Track To Be The Official Song Of The 2012 Olympics [UPDATED]
The song has since gone public and is receiving generally positive responses; it certainly isn’t dubstep-inspired like many people predicted. Have a listen and tell us what you think.
“Survival”, a new track by Muse which will probably feature on their upcoming album, will be premiered tonight from 19:00 in the UK on Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show.
The song will officially release at 20:00 GMT and will serve as the official track of the London 2012 Olympics, being played throughout every sports session in the competition.
Muse appeared at a press conference earlier today (June 27th) to launch the Rock The Games music program, a scheme that “Survival” will front.
“It’s a huge honour to have the track chosen as such a major part of the London 2012 Olympic Games,” said frontman Matt Bellamy.
“I wrote it with the Games in mind as it expresses a sense of conviction and determination to win.”
The exact style of the song is unknown at this time, but we’ll surely find out soon. It could be influenced by dubstep, if the trailer for their latest album is anything to go by.
