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.
