With the Winter games completed in Vancouver, Canada, attention now turns to the UK events in summer 2012 and Muse, the stadium-filling trio set to headline Glastonbury this year, have tentatively expressed an interest. "Since it's here in London, sure," their drummer Dominic Howard said. "We've got a new song, so maybe we could use that."
The Horrors, shortlisted last year for the Mercury Prize with second album 'Primary Colours', also have a track in mind. Keyboard player Tom Cowan has revealed he wrote a song called 'Olympian' with bassist Rhys Webb, and suggested Mayor of London Boris Johnson give it a listen.
"We felt it would just be perfect. So Boris, if you're listening, get in contact," Cowan said. "It's an electronic piece and it's very evocative of the human frame and very athletic, but also graceful. It would be a lot better than whatever they choose, that's for sure."
Sumner, a co-writer for New Order's World Cup football anthem 'World In Motion,' has also thrown is hat in the ring. He told BBC 6 Music, "[I'm] very interested. I'm a sporty guy myself. I go jogging every day. I jog 20 miles every day, so I'm well into athletics."
