Published Jan 23, 2014U2 still haven't offered up all the details behind their impending follow-up to 2009's No Line on the Horizon, but fans will be treated to a new single premiere during this year's Super Bowl, as well as the chance to nab the song for free.
U2 announced through their website today (January 23) that their new "Invisible" single will be unveiled during the February 2 football event in a commercial break. The band will be seen performing the track in a new music video helmed by Mark Romanek, who shot the clip recently in Los Angeles.
Simultaneously, the song will be put up on iTunes as a free download for 24 hours. Each time the track is downloaded, the Bank of America will donate $1 to Bono's (RED) organization. The bank will donate up to $2 million, with the funds being directed towards the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
While we'll have to wait a couple of weeks before we hear the track, the band detailed that the song was produced by Danger Mouse and mixed by Tom Elmhirst.
An album title, tracklist and due date have yet to be given for the upcoming U2 record, but the group began working on new music with producer Danger Mouse as far back as 2010.
"We have about 12 songs with him," Bono said at the time. "At the moment that looks like the album we will put out next because it's just happening so easily."
It's unknown if U2's recent "Ordinary Love" single for biopic Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom will also be included on their next full-length. The song has achieved success on its own, however, recently winning the Golden Globe for Best Original Song. It has also been nominated in the Best Original Song category at the 2014 Academy Awards.
