BRAND NEW TRACK SURVIVAL WILL BE THE OFFICIAL SONG OF THE LONDON 2012 OLYMPIC GAMES
NEW STUDIO ALBUM THE 2ND LAW OUT SEPTEMBER 2012
Muse has had their brand new song Survival adopted as the official song of the London 2012 Olympic Games. The track is available digitally now.
Survival will be played throughout sports sessions in all London 2012 venues during the entire Games – when athletes enter the stadium, the lead up to the medal ceremonies and the track can be used by international broadcasters.
The group appeared at the official London 2012 press conference yesterday, June 27, launching the ‘Rock The Games’ music programme, which Survival is spearheading.
Matt Bellamy said today: “It’s a huge honour 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”.
