Underworld Named Music Directors of Olympic Opening Ceremony

Dec 07, 2011 Bookmark and Share

Recently, it was announced that Elbow will be composing the 2012 Olympic theme song. Today, word came that Underworld has been named music directors of the Olympic Opening Ceremony. How’s that for odd bedfellows?

But wait, there’s more. Underworld will be working with filmmaker/producer Danny Boyle—who they’ve previously worked with on A Life Less Ordinary, The Beach, and (of course) Trainspotting. Says Boyle via press release, “‘Appointing Underworld to direct the music in the Olympic Opening Ceremony is the final piece of the jigsaw for the team of leading British creatives who will deliver the ceremonies.”
