U2 Rocks the Crowd in Black-and-White 'Invisible' Video
The band recruited Mark Romanek to direct the video for the (RED) track they premiered in a Super Bowl ad for Bank of America.
Just a week after premiering the song during a high-profile Bank of America ad during the Super Bowl, U2 has dropped a Mark Romanek-directed music video for "Invisible," one of the songs off the band's upcoming studio album.
The video, shot completely in black-and-white, features the Irish four-piece performing the new tune in front of a captive audience; Bono croons the song into a hang-down mic while the rest of the band riffs away in front of a screen of multiple video effects.
It's the first collaboration between U2 and Romanek, the storied director whose credits include Jay Z's "99 Problems," Johnny Cash's "Hurt." "Invisible" was shot in a Santa Monica airport hangar over three days last month, the visual clip for the band's partnership with (RED), which helps fight HIV/AIDS in Africa. The band raised over $3 million with the song upon its premiere and subsequent one-day free download period on iTunes after the Super Bowl.
"Invisible" isn't just making waves with its new video. The song helped U2 make history on the Alternative Songs chart last week, reclaiming the mark for most songs placed on the chart in its history with 39, beating out Pearl Jam. The song debuted at No. 28.
