It's a moment of honor and excitement for Muse! Their new single 'Survival' has been chosen as the official track for London 2012 Olympic Games and was premiered on BBC yesterday.
Muse confirmed this news on their website Muse.mu. The statement reads: "Matt wrote the song with the Olympics in mind. It's about total conviction and pure determination to win.” “The song will be played throughout the Games including when athletes enter the stadium, in the lead up to the medal ceremony and also as the theme for all international TV coverage. The worldwide radio exclusive will be tonight on BBC Radio 1 around 19:30 and will be available to buy on iTunes and in the muse.mu store immediately afterwards.“
The track will be soon available to buy on iTunes and in the muse.mu store. The band’s sixth album, 'The 2nd Law', will be released in September 2012. The rockers will perform in various parts of Europe until the end of this year. For tickets and information on their European tour, visit their official website.
