U2 to Debut New Song During Super Bowl XLVIII
The band will debut its new single ‘Invisible’ in a commercial during the game, and after it airs, the track will be available as a free iTunes download for 24 hours. As if getting new U2 for free wasn’t enough, the group has struck a deal in which Bank of America will donate a dollar for each download — up to $2 million — to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
Calling Bank of America’s involvement “great news,” U2 frontman Bono added, “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.”
The promotion is a collaborative effort between BofA and (RED), the global charity foundation Bono co-founded in 2006. For more information — and to watch a video in which Bono discusses their partnership’s goals — visit this link.
