U2 to Debut New Song "Invisible" in a Commercial Airing During the Super Bowl

Photo: Damon WinterU2 fans who tune in to Super Bowl LVIII on February 2 will be able to hear a brand-new song by the band called "Invisible," while also getting the chance to contribute to fight against AIDS.  During the big game, a new commercial featuring the Irish rockers performing the tune will premiere and the song also will be made available as a free download at iTunes for a 24-hour period.

The campaign is part of new partnership between U2, the (RED) charity and Bank of America.  For every track downloaded over the course of those 24 hours, Bank of America will donate $1 -- up to a total of $2 million -- to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.  The initiative's goal is to raise more than $10 million for the cause, which would bring the total amount (RED) has brought in for the fund to $250 million since it was founded in 2006 by U2's Bono and activist Bobby Shriver.

"Bank of America coming on as a (RED) partner to help the Global Fund's efforts to eliminate AIDS is great news," says Bono in a statement.  "It's the kind of game-changing influence that will not just deliver millions of dollars but raise consciousness and keep public pressure on putting an end to this devastating pandemic which has already taken the lives of 35 million people."

To find out more about the campaign, and to watch a new video featuring Bono talking about the partnership and its goals, visit BankofAmerica.com/RED.

"Invisible" was produced by Danger Mouse and mixed by Tom Elmhirst.  The commercial featuring the track will include scenes from an upcoming official video for the song that's directed by Mark Romanek.  Super Bowl LVIII will air live on CBS, and the game is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. ET.
