U2 to Release New Track “Invisible” for Free During Super Bowl

U2 has been in the news a lot lately, but interestingly, there’s still a lot we don’t know. We know they’re putting out a highly-anticipated new album in April, we know Danger Mouse is producing it and we know they’ve returned to Island Records, but we don’t know the album’s name. We’ve heard a new song “Ordinary Love” from the new Mandela biopic, and we know the song has won a Golden Globe and is up for an Oscar, but we don’t know if the song is even on the new album.

Needless to say, we’ll take what we can get at this point. So watch for iTunes to experience high volumes of traffic during the Super Bowl on Feb. 2, when the band release their new song “Invisible” as a free download for 24 hours starting at kickoff. As Rolling Stone reports, the new song will also be featured on a Superbowl commercial which is expected to announce U2’s new campaign with (RED) and Bank of America to raise $10 million in the fight against AIDS.

Speaking of which, your free download of “Invisible” will do some good, as well. For every download during the 24-hour period, Bank of America will donate $1 (up to a maximum of $2 million) to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.

Expect to hear and see more of U2 in the coming days as the album release approaches. They are expected to be the first musical guests when Jimmy Fallon takes over The Tonight Show on February 7th.

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.
