Muse single ‘Survival’ is released - Listen Now!
Get your first listen of the official Olympics anthem
Muse premiered the first single from their new album The 2nd Law last night (27 June) on Zane Lowe's Radio 1 show.
You can scroll down to listen to 'Survival', which is the official single of the 2012 Olympic Games, now.
Artrocker's Cindy Suzuki gave her initial thoughts of the song.
"It's got that cinematic backs-against-the-wall thing that Muse do well, but with a multitude of opera samples and a sense of ridiculousness that strays close to The Darkness' territory, I'm not sure how seriously the athletes will be able to take it. As a subversive piss take of the Olympics it works quite well though!"
Matt Bellamy said of the Olympics decision: “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”.
