U2 Reveal Next Single With Super Bowl Commercial

As planned, U2 debuted the first single from their upcoming album during the recent Super Bowl. U2 Reveal Next Single With Super Bowl Commercial

We knew U2 would debut their next single during the Super Bowl, and they did just that over the past weekend.

According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, U2 unveiled their single “Invisible” through a partnership with (RED) and Bank of America. The black-and-white footage during the commercial features U2 performing the track in a stadium, but beyond this, the song was available for download 24 hours after it played during the game’s first quarter.

But this isn’t some ordinary track for downloading. For every song sold, Bank of America plans to donate $1 (up to a maximum of $2 million) to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, which will offer crucial care and testing to those suffering with AIDS or HIV in the world’s most impoverished nations.

As of now, little is known about the follow-up to No Line on the Horizon. The album has tentatively been called 10 Reasons to Exist and was produced by Danger Mouse, who had been working with U2 since 2010. Reports claim the group already recorded an album, scrapped it after not liking it, and then put together something entirely different.

While U2 is now supposedly done recording, the release date seems to change, with reports claiming anywhere from April through June. The album, as well, potentially marks their return to Island Records after being on Mercury for seven years.
