The remaining four official songs for the sports presentation programme of the London 2012 Olympic Games include tracks by Elton John, Chemical Brothers and Dizzee Rascal.
These four songs join Muse’s Survival to become the five official songs of the London 2012 Olympic Games and part of the recently-announced Rock the Games music programme.
They are as follows:
Good Morning To The Night by Elton John vs Pnau (out now) is the lead track from the new album of the same name, also out now. Pnau are known for side-project Empire Of The Sun; a selection of old Elton John masters which have been re-imagined into an album of songs from 1970 - 1976.
Good Life by Delphic (released July 23). In addition to Good Life, Clarion Call from Delphic’s debut album has been chosen as Channel Four’s theme tune for the Paralympics and they have also reworked Chariots of Fire which will be used for the medal ceremonies.
Scream by Dizzee Rascal feat. Pepper (released August 6) marks Dizzee’s return, and will be followed by fifth studio album. Pepper is the latest signing to the Dirtee Stank label and is preparing for the release of her debut album next year.
Theme For Velodrome by Chemical Brothers (released July 30) was composed specially for the Olympic Track Cycling events in the Velodrome. The electronic music duo - Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons - set about creating something that would reflect “the sense of speed, pace and drama,” of the sport as well as the “incredible beauty” (Ed Simons Q Magazine), of the new London 2012 Velodrome’s architecture.
A library of 2012 songs with five themes – energy, primetime, extreme, heritage and world stage – has also been compiled, with each theme tailored for specific sports including heritage for Wimbledon, or extreme for BMX.
