Hear new U2 song, "Ordinary Love"

U2 have posted a lyric video for their new song, "Ordinary Love", on their Facebook page.

Scroll down to watch it.

The song, which is taken from the film Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, will be available as the A-side of a limited-edition 10-inch vinyl release on Record Store Day's Back to Black Friday event on November 29.

U2 bassist Adam Clayton recently revealed that the band are aiming to finish a new album by the end of November. They last put out an album in 2009 when they released No Line On The Horizon. It is expected that their new record will appear in 2014, with Clayton confirming that the band are trying to get the songs "absolutely right" prior to Christmas.

"I think it’s a bit of a return to U2 of old, but with the maturity, if you like, of the U2 of the last 10 years. It’s a combination of those two things and it’s a really interesting hybrid," Clayton said.

He added: "We’re in the studio. We’re trying to get these 12 songs absolutely right and get them finished by the end of November, and then we can kind of enjoy Christmas."

The 3rd Uncut Playlist Of 2015

Still at that stage of the year where I nearly type 2014 every time instead of 2015, but time moves on - swifter, perhaps, than Bjork for one would've liked this week, given how an unauthorised leak forced the release of "Vulnicura" a couple of months ahead of schedule.
