  • Lyrics
  • The BBC used this song to soundtrack their animated trailer for the Rio 2016 Olympics, featuring a host of animals morphing into athletes. Asked by the NME if the track was written specifically for the commercial, Jamie N Commons replied: "The BBC sent me the brief and I was working on this song at the time, and it was pretty much done. The sentiment of it matched up with whatever they were looking for the advert. It was just perfect, serendipitous timing, really."

    "I had 'Jungle' on the last World Cup - it's [another] motivational, heavy loud guitar song, basically," he added. "It's a strange niche to find yourself in but it's good to have one, I suppose!"
