U2 Release New Song For Free Download

u2-invisible-650-430

U2 won’t need to do much to top No Line On the Horizon, but they already seem to be on the right track. Since admitting that their 2009 effort was less than stellar, the Irish rock legends have won a Golden Globe and been nominated for an Oscar, both for their 2013 single, “Ordinary Love,” which appeared in Mandela. The next taste of the direction of their forthcoming thirteenth studio album is titled “Invisible,” and it can be downloaded for free until midnight tonight on iTunes.

In keeping with the band’s reputation for charity work and activism, they are working with frontman Bono’s HIV/AIDS awareness brand, Product Red, for the release of “Invisible.” For each download of the song (up to two million), Bank of America will donate one dollar to the fight against AIDS.

While not the most compelling entry in U2’s discography, the Danger Mouse-produced track is certainly a step up from No Line. At the very least, it has me excited to hear the first official single from the new record, which is expected to be released this summer.
