I thought Elbow was doing this? Or were they doing something else?

Cool, looking forward to hearing this. I wonder if this will be on the new album? Or, if it is just an Olympic exclusive?

Do you have to pay for this? I assume so if it's on iTunes... If so, that would be shitty

(And I'm not even a Muse fan nor do I have much interest in this)

Maybe because the band used to be great and became massive commercial sell-outs who make fairly boring music these days. Just a guess.

Hopefully exclusive, because I have a feeling it's going to be very 'Uprising'-like and not very dimensional.

In what way are they commercial sell outs? They've been massive ever since Origin Of Symmetry was released, so unless you've been listening to them since 1999 or something, they've more or less stayed the same levels of commerciality for about 10 and a bit years.

Also, who the fuck still calls bands sell outs?
