In the midst of recording The 2nd Law, the band’s 6th studio album, Muse received a phone call that would change the course of their album’s release and deliver an audience of over a billion. Frontman Matt Bellamy explains his elation when learning that his song was adopted by the London 2012 Olympics. In a chat with KROQ-FM Los Angeles’ Stryker, he describes the amazement the band shares having penned the official Olympics theme. “It’s great to be a part of it. It’s such an exciting time for London. London’s been building up to this for like ten years. Patriotism isn’t really a big thing in England but I think this Olympics has brought it back a little bit.”
