Muse ‘Survival’ 2012 London Olympics Video Released

Written by Brayden Darke on July 5, 2012

Muse’s brand new song Survival has been adopted as the official song of the 2012 Olympic Games that are taking place in London from the end of this month. The track will be played throughout the Games, including when athletes enter the stadium. A video for the song has been released, which you can watch below.

Matt Bellamy said that the song was written “with the Olympics in mind. It’s about total conviction and pure determination to win. The song is also going to be played throughout the Games including when athletes enter the stadium, in the lead up to the medal ceremony and as the theme for all international TV coverage.”

Muse will be releasing their new studio album The 2nd Law in September. Many reports of the album say that it will be ‘dubstep-tinged’ after the album preview seemed to have a certain dubstep sound to it, but we’ll just have to wait and see whether that’s the case.

Hopefully we should see a visit to Australia on the back of their new album, possibly next year.
