Muse Unveil Olympic Themed Video

Watch the new promo clip for their new single

Muse have premiered the video for their brand new single, 'Survival', which is the official song of the Olympics.

Frontman Matt Bellamy has also revealed in an interview with the BBC how the song came about: "I got approached about a year ago to write this song for the Olympics and we were going to work on it with someone, I can't say who, a good pianist though. So I wrote this song with that in mind, that's why it's got a lot of guitar and piano at the same time, which normally I don't do. That went away for some reason though.

"It sounded like it was going to be a good song anyway, at that time it didn't have lyrics, it was just a big musical idea, involving a choir and stuff.

"So as time went on and we got asked to play the opening ceremony, we thought 'We've got to play this'. We got the Olympic people in to listen and they loved it."
