On Super Bowl Sunday, for a period of 24 hours, U2’s new song “Invisible” will be available as a free download to benefit (RED). Mark Romanek, responsible of some of the most influential music videos of our time—from Jay Z’s “Picasso Baby” and Johnny Cash’s “Hurt” to Nine Inch Nails’ “Closer”—directed U2’s “Invisible.” He also directed the Super Bowl ad for the band and Bank of America which sets up donations to benefit (RED) matching the number of downloads. (RED) was set up to channel funds to the Global Fund to fight AIDS, TB and Malaria. Rolling Stone writes: “In more than three decades of U2 videos, none have captured the sheer glee of a fan’s face the way their latest, ‘Invisible,’ honed in on the select few who got to catch Bono for a short crowdsurfing sequence during the Edge’s solo.” Here’s what the LA Times had to say about the this collaboration between the legendary band and director.
