We now know a little more of what U2 was shooting at Santa Monica Airport last week. U2.com gave fans the “scoop” on Sunday saying, “[The recent press] is all about a new song called ‘Invisible’, a track the band will be releasing as part of an initiative with (RED), to support the fight against AIDS.”
The post continues, “Everybody’s really excited about the song and the band have been shooting the video in LA.”
It ends by stating, “That’s all we can say for now… we’ll keep you posted!”
The Edge gave fans a little more to look forward to when speaking to E! News on the Red Carpet for the Golden Globes on Sunday, where the won “Best Original Song” for “Ordinary Love” from Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom.
“That’s all we can say for now… we’ll keep you posted!”
The guitarist revealed that “Invisible” will “be the first thing everyone will hear.”
He continued to say that “the album is in the works,” but gave no indication on a release date. However, when he was pressed for more details, he stated, “We got something amazing planned. We can’t really tell you much about it.”
Still no official word from the band on what else, if anything, will come out of the video shoot from last week, but as previously reported, many extras in attendance claimed the shoot was for a Super Bowl commercial which would announce the release date of the group’s 13th studio effort as well as feature a track from it, so we are expecting this to be announced very very soon.
The band made a surprise appearance at actor Sean Penn’s Third Annual Help Haiti benefit at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills Saturday night, performing “I Will Follow,” “Desire,” and “Vertigo.” This was the first time in four years that the band has performed live. The star-studded gala raised nearly $6 million for the J/P Haitian Relief Organization.
The band dodged the album/tour questions even further in the press room after the Golden Globes.
