Super Bowl: U2 Debut New Song "Invisible" During Commercials (Video)
U2 debuted their newest song, "Invisible," during Super Bowl XLVIII on Sunday.
The single from their upcoming album was played to fans during a commercial from (RED) and Bank of America during a break in the first quarter.
Shot in black-and-white, the video showed the band performing its future hit in front of a packed stadium, with Bono leaning into the microphone with his superstar stance.
As previously reported by Billboard, the song will set up U2’s forthcoming album, its follow-up to 2009’s No Line on the Horizon and the group’s first under new manager Guy Oseary.
“Invisible” will be available as a limited-edition free download on iTunes for the first 24 hours after the Super Bowl commercial airs. For every download during that time, Bank of America will donate $1 (up to $2 million) to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, to provide life-saving HIV/AIDS treatment, testing and prevention services in many of the world’s poorest countries. Beyond the downloads, U2, (RED) and Bank of America expect to generate more than $10 million in donations and funding for the campaign.
