U2 return on Super Bowl Sunday with the first track off their upcoming 13th studio album.
Entitled “Invisible”, it’s a markedly simple number compared to much of U2’s recent output, relying on simple keyboard movements to get to the chorus. Bono reserves his vocal power for that refrain, where he unleashes his declaration that “I’m more than you know / I’m more than you see here / I’m more than you’ll let me be”.
The track is available for free download via iTunes from now until 11:59 p.m. on Monday, February 3rd. For every download, Bank of America will donate $1 —up to $2 million— to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. It also soundtracks Bank of America’s Super Bowl commercial.
Speaking to USA Today, Bono said “Invisible” is not the first official single off the album. “We have another song we’re excited about to kick off the album,” he explained. “This is just sort of a sneak preview — to remind people we exist.”
Though originally due out in April, Bono told USA today that the band will continue to work on the album “for a couple of months” with the hope to have it out by the summer.
Update: The Super Bowl commercial featuring the track is now online. In the minute-long clip, U2 performs “Invisible” in front of a giant screen of sparks and a flashlight-bearing crowd. Watch it below.
