The song is from the Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom film
U2 has announced plans to release “Ordinary Love,” their new song written for the upcoming Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom movie, on 10″ vinyl for Record Store Day’s Back to Black Friday promotion on November 29th.
U2.com reports that the sleeve artwork features a striking painting of Nelson Mandela by Irish artist and illustrator Oliver Jeffers.
Oliver, along with Mac Premo, has also directed a lyric video for “Ordinary Love” which the band will feature on their website during the month of November. The single debuted in the film’s trailer released earlier this month. The band was invited to write the song by movie producer Harvey Weinstein.
The B-side of the Record Store Day release will feature a second track called “Breathe (Mandela Version).”
Only 10,000 copies will be pressed and available at participating independent record stores across North America on November 29th.
