Underworld: Opening Ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics
The Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games is easily the biggest gig on the planet for Rick Smith of Underworld. Rick was designated as the musical director for the London Olympics, which saw him releasing ‘Isles of Wonder: Music For the Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games' as the soundtrack for arguably the most prestigious event around.
Rick reflects on this momentous achievement by proclaiming, “Music is Britain’s cultural heartbeat; it’s a perpetual act of revolutionary thought. From William Blake to the Beatles via the Clash and the Chemical Brothers, the soundtrack to our lives fizzes and hums all around us like a stray signal from a radio dial that your internal antenna just can’t help but tune into.”
A digital release of Isles of Wonder is available now via iTunes.
A physical release will be made available on August 6th through Decca Records
