Additionally, rumors speculate the track will be heavily tied to the 2012 Olympic games taking place later this year in London.

UPDATE: The song, titled "Survival" according to Bellamy was written w/ The Olympics in mind and has since been selected as the main theme to be played at sporting events, on broadcasts, etc... Have a listen below

VERSION 1: Survival w/ prelude (extended orchestral intro)

VERSION 2: Survival HQ radio edit

Yet another amazing track from the musical genius known as Matt Bellamy..... When the trailer first came out for the new album I just sat there gobsmacked and this is yet another fantastic track from the album... Roll on September

Love how the intro melds Rachmaninov and Chopin.

I'm so excited for the album now!!! Also I really hope it is for the Olympics that would be epic.

Instant love on first listen. Stupendously awesome. Just tried to share it with my Muse detesting husband. He told me to 'turn that rubbish off' as he was trying to watch the news...

Yeah, good song. Isn't the best of the band, but it's nice. And the best part is that isn't dubstep :D

21st century queen at its finest

I dig this song for the Olympics how cool to have a Muse song be the main song! It by far is not my favorite Muse, but real excited to have new stuff from them!

Great tract,conveying the dedication,passion and determination of a wannabe Olympian. Best wishes from a fellow Teignmothian.

I'm amazed at the almost universal praise for this song. I like MUSE and have seen them live, but I think the comments are based on blind devotion. The Olympics deserved better than this pompous over-the-top wannabe prog rock anthem.

What do you wanna hear Steve? I get knocked down but I get up again?

Matt Bellamy lost the plot with The Resistance and by the sounds of this he's still looking for it! Pompous rubbish from a bloke who's songs on Absolution were so unique and beautiful and now sounds like he's desperately trying to be the modern day Queen! As he said in Time Is Running Out ... How did it come to this??!!! And for those who want to rubbish me, I'm a massive Muse fan and Absolution is my all time favourite album, I just don't have to like everything he does!!

Adam is spot on with his comment so queen

| June 29, 2012 at 7:27AM
It is so spot on that everyone keeps mentioning queen. That was my absolute first thought while listening to the song. Did Freddy Mercury's Ghost posses Matthew Bellamy at some point in 2007-2009?

OMG I love this song....

How Appropriate That our 2012 End Of The World Anthem Would Come From Muse. Praise The Rock Gods!! I LOOOOOOVE!! I'm So Excited Right Now!

Great music, appalling lyrics

Really ....not what I would want to hear played if I was at the Olympics. I love Muse but that song sucks

Amazing. Can't wait for the album and a US tour.
