Check out U2’s New Music Video for “Invisible”

Apparently, U2 want to make sure their new tune “Invisible” is anything but. This week, on the heels of the song’s official Super Bowl release—which ultimately raised over $3M for (RED)—the band have released the official music video for “Invisible.”

Shot in black-and-white, the video was filmed over three days in an airport hangar in Santa Monica, under the direction of Mark Romanek (whose resume also includes videos for Johnny Cash’s “Hurt” and Jay Z’s “99 Problems”). Using a hanging microphone on an illuminated stand, Bono basically does what he does best—he plays to the crowd. (Watch for the crowd surfing segment near the end.)

If any of this footage looks familiar, it should; if you watched the Super Bowl, some of this footage was in the commercial announcing the tune as a free download on iTunes to raise money for (RED).

Watch for U2 to stay on the radar over the next few months as the new album’s release nears.  They’ll make an appearance next week during Jimmy Fallon’s debut week on The Tonight Show, and they are slated to perform their tune “Ordinary Love” during the Oscars telecast on Mar. 2.

About the Author

on MUSIC IS MY OXYGEN WEEKLY.

Tim Ferrar's interest in pop and rock started as a child, listening to Top-40 radio for hours on end while playing air guitar in his bedroom. Eventually air guitar led to electric guitar, and Tim began playing in bands and writing his own songs. With an admitted weakness for "a great hook or a great guitar riff," Tim's musical tastes are broad and varied, ranging from Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga on the pop side to Bon Jovi and Foo Fighters on the rock side- making him the ideal guy to cover our Rock and Pop categories. By day, Tim is a mild-mannered accountant in Chicago. By night, he rocks out on electric guitar in a cover band in various clubs around town- much to the surprise of some of his clients.
