The track “Survival” by Muse has been released and will also serve as the official song of the 2012 London Olympic Games. “Survival” will be played throughout the sporting sessions in all the London 2012 venues during the entire Games, when athletes enter the stadium, the lead up to the medal ceremonies and it will be made available for international broadcasters of the Olympic Ceremonies to use in their broadcasts.
The band appeared at the official London 2012 press conference today, launching the “Rock The Games” music program, which “Survival” is spearheading. “It’s a huge honor to have the track chosen as such a major part of the London 2012 Olympic Games,” said lead singer/guitarist Matt Bellamy. He added, “I wrote it with the Games in mind as it expresses a sense of conviction and determination to win.”
The Grammy-award winning band have been working on their forthcoming album, The 2nd Law, which is due out in September.
