Don’t get too excited, as this song was most likely written specifically for the London Olympics. Seemingly unknown if this will actually be a part of 2nd Law, however, its new, and it’s Muse, so enjoy

Warner Brothers Records writes:

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. The worldwide radio exclusive will be tonight on BBC Radio 1 around 19:30 and will be available to buy on iTunes and in the store immediately afterwards.

We are honoured that the Olympics have chosen our song to officially represent the London 2012 Olympic Games across the globe.

Muse’s forthcoming album, The 2nd Law will be out worldwide 9/18!

Update: The International Olympic Committee just released this new official video for the song. You may have to view the video on YouTube if it doesn’t work on our site.

    I’ve listened to this several times now. Im not buying it, it nothing drastically edgy and I think it designed to close the chapter on their old style.

    . . .It’s also possibly designed to throw us off the scent of what’s to come. It’s not gonna be dub step heavy either.

    Or the alternative, I don’t care for Muse as I once did cause they couldn’t keep up with their own ahead of the curve pace
