October 2nd, 2011 - 4:03 pm ICT by IANS  

London, Oct 2 (IANS) Scottish rocker Mark Ronson has been selected to create the theme music for the Olympic Games here next year.

The track will have singer Katy B on vocals and include sounds of athletes from around the world — including grunts and the sound of tennis balls hitting racquets.

Ronson, who is inspired by British table-tennis champ Darius Night’s sounds, will also use that part in his track.

“Sometimes he uses it to put off his opponents, and sometimes it is a sound of victory - to me it sounded like James Brown, so I knew I would use that,” quoted the 36-year-old as saying.

The theme will be unveiled in March next year.
