Last week, news broke that the London Olympic Committee had chosen a song off the forthcoming Muse record to be the official song of the London 2012 Summer Olympics. With fan fare that can really only be generated by an international event like the Summer Olympic the song premiered on BBC Radio 1 and then quickly made its way to the rest of the music world.

An official video for the track titled “Survival” has now been released by the Olympic Committee using archival footage from past Olympic Games as the visual accompaniment.

Due to geographic restrictions imposed by the Olympic Committee, viewers must watch the video on YouTube.

Buy your copy of Muse “Survival” via iTunes.

Muse’s highly anticipated 6th studio album The 2nd Law is scheduled to be released on September 17th.

    Reblogged this on Nii-Teiko and commented:
    now…I’ve been a Muse fan since 1998. I can still distinctly remembering hearing the song Cave and thinking who is this but this is unacceptable

    I think it’s safe to say that this is Muse VAULTING clearly over the shark and, unfortunately, feeling good about it too :-/

    of late, the tightrope that they have treaded has been preciously leaning towards an overblown, Queen aping nonsense seeming almost to be in the exact same trajectory as their rising success (especially Stateside) but wow…I have no words for this musical crime

    moral: it can happen to the best of ’em. lads – hang your heads

      Um, first of all, Cave didn’t release until 1999…they weren’t even with a record label until 1998. So based on your opening statement, dismissing everything else you said. Cheers!
