The London Olympics will adopt Muse's new song "Survival" as the official track of this year's Games. The song will play during sporting sessions, as athletes enter stadiums and for the lead-ups to medal ceremonies.
"It's a huge honor to have the track chosen as such a major part of the London 2012 Olympic Games," said frontman Matthew Bellamy in a release. "I wrote it with the Games in mind as it expresses a sense of conviction and determination to win."
"Survival" will make its radio debut tonight and will be available for purchase on iTunes shortly thereafter. Muse is set to release their next album, The 2nd Law, in September.
