New Song "invisble" Free Itunes Download 2/2 - 3/2 And Superbowl Advert

Recommended Posts

The band have given a new track, 'Invisible', to (RED) for a free download on iTunes next week - for 24 hours only. 

The song, produced by Danger Mouse and mixed by Tom Elmhirst, launches a partnership with (RED) and Bank of America to fight AIDS

Every time the track is downloaded, anywhere in the world, a $1 donation will be made to (RED) by Bank of America - up to a total of $2m. All the funds will go to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria

'Invisible' will be available on iTunes for 24hours from Feb 2nd - 'Super Bowl Sunday'. A commercial during the Super Bowl will feature the band performing the track, from a forthcoming video directed by Mark Romanek. 

Since Bono and Bobby Shriver founded (RED) in 2006, to engage business in the fight against AIDS, it's generated more than $240 million for the Global Fund. (RED) and its partners – from Bank of America, to Starbucks, Apple and others – are working to end mother-to-child transmission of the deadly HIV virus by 2015, in line with the UN Millennium Development Goals

REPORT: BONO SAYS JUNE FOR NEW ALBUM

Posted: January 13, 2014
By: Matt McGee

Make of this what you want, but Roger Friedman is reporting on Showbiz411 that Bono told him U2's new album may not be out until June. Friedman says he chatted with Bono at the Weinstein Films Golden Globes afterparty.

"We're still working some things out" is how Bono is quoted in the article. He later describes the new song, "Invisible," as "It's not what you expect. It's not your typical love song."

The only thing the band has said officially is that "Invisible" will be released soon as part of a project with (RED), and our reports prior to that are that "Invisible" will be used in a Super Bowl commercial on February 2nd.

Darn, that means I have to sit up to silly hour and watch a sport I don't understand - all in the name of music!

Sounds like a plan.

I think their brand partner for the commercial will be beats. I don't approve of it but I think that if they (bono) want to stay relevant, partnering with beats wouldn't be a bad idea to get publicity. It also coincides with Beats releasing their new music streaming service which comes out January 21st. Anyways, new u2 is always good
