Muse praise 'World War Z' soundtrack: "It was a real collaboration"

By
Muse frontman Matt Bellamy has praised the use of his band's music in World War Z.

The singer explained that using songs from their latest album The 2nd Law for the apocalyptic horror film's soundtrack was a "great fit".

"We've done our music in films a few times but this is definitely my favourite one. It was a real collaboration from beginning to end so I'm really glad we got the song in," Bellamy told Absolute Radio.

"This is probably the biggest film we've ever done. Right from the bat we knew this was a big thing because they kept contacting us when we were making the album saying they wanted us to score the film.

"We weren't available to score the film, so we stayed in touch with them and they invited me and Dom to go and see early cuts of the film and we saw some really crazy stuff.


"I was reading World War Z when I made the album - and I loved it - it had an influence [on] songs like 'Survival', like 'Isolated System'.

"I was thinking about this kind of insane survival situation - this real bleak kind of apocalyptic scenario - when I was making the album, which I tend to do anyway when I'm making albums.

"So it's a really great fit, it's a lovely film. Well maybe lovely's not the right word - it's a real, like, thrill ride, total edge of your seat - got some real scary moments.''

Muse played a free gig in London last night following the premiere of World War Z.
