Muse unveil official Olympic song


British rock band Muse have announced their new single Survival will be the official song for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Frontman Matt Bellamy "wrote the song with the Olympics in mind".

The song, which premieres on Radio 1 later, will be played throughout the games when athletes enter the stadium and in the run-up to medal ceremonies.

The music was unveiled alongside a video montage at Olympic Park on Wednesday.
