If there’s any indication of how popular The Chemical Brothers have become around the world over the decades they’ve been making music, it might be this latest announcement. The duo’s latest record, Theme for Valedrome, has been chosen as the Official Song of the 2012 London Olympic Games. Yep, one of the pioneers of modern electronic music are being showcased on the world’s biggest sporting stage. Quite a feat if you ask us.
Velodrome happens to be a bicycle racing arena, so it makes sense in context of the Olympics, and definitely makes sense when you listen to the song. It makes us want to run/bike/swim/do anything really really fast. Preview the song below!
