U2 have unveiled a new song, ‘Invisible’. See below to hear a preview now.

The excerpt of ‘Invisible’ was previewed during this year’s Super Bowl and is part of a new partnership between Bono’s charity (RED) and Bank Of America. The song is available for for free on iTunes for 24 hours with Bank of America set to donate $1 (60p) per download of the track, up to a total of $2million (£1.2million), to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.

Speaking to USA Today, Bono revealed that the Danger Mouse-produced ‘Invisible’ is not the first song to be taken from U2’s new album and that an official single will follow later in the year. “We have another song we’re excited about to kick off the album,” he said. “This is just sort of a sneak preview, to remind people we exist.”

U2 recently received an Oscar nomination for their most recent song ‘Ordinary Love’, which appears on the soundtrack of the film Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom. The track won Best Original Song at the Golden Globes.

The band played their first live show in three years at a Haiti benefit concert in Beverly Hills and have been announced as the first guests to perform on presenter Jimmy Fallon’s first episode of The Tonight Show. The band will be performing on the show – which is currently fronted by Jay Leno – on February 17.
