U2 have returned with their first product in three years.
‘Ordinary Love’ was written for the soundtrack to the forthcoming biopic Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, which stars British actor Idris Elba in the title role. The song will be released along with another track titled ‘Breath’, also from the Mandela film, on 10″ vinyl for Record Store Day’s Black Friday on November 29.
The video by Oliver Jeffers and Mac Premo features the song’s lyrics written in longhand across each scene – watch it on U2’s Facebook page.
The Irish band have been working with Dangermouse on their new album, which they aim to have finished by the end of November. The songs from the Mandela soundtrack will not appear on that record.
