Muse have released their highly anticipated new single “Survival” off their upcoming new album The 2nd Law set for a September 17th release!
“Survival” is an epic track, and to make things even better it has been selected as the official song of this summer’s Olympic Games. The band posted the following statement on their website:
We are very excited to announce that a Muse song, Survival, has been selected by the London Olympic committee to be the main official song for the London 2012 Olympic Games. 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.
We are honoured that the Olympics have chosen our song to officially represent the London 2012 Olympic Games across the globe.
“Survival” is set to hit iTunes later tonight! In the meantime listen to it below, and let us know what you think!!
