Invisible - U2

Song: Invisible
Artist: U2
Album: Invisible (single)

U2 debuted this brand-new track in a commercial during the Super Bowl, tied to Bono's RED organization that fights AIDS globally.  It is said to be a "preview" track from their upcoming, as-yet-untitled 13th studio album which is being produced by Broken Bells/Gnarls Barkley co-founder Danger Mouse.  The bands been working on the album since 2011.

"Invisible" sounds like classic U2 with some slight electronic flourishes.  There's that Edge guitar, soaring Bono vocals... and a reminder that new U2 is always like going home a bit.  I haven't been totally enamoured with a U2 record since 2000's All That You Can't Leave Behind, but "Invisible" certainly gives me that vibe... I look forward to hearing the new record.

There is a Mark Romanek-directed video on the way for the track.
