(Relaxnews) – After unveiling the single “Invisible” in an ad aired during the Super Bowl, Irish band U2 has dropped a black and white video for the track.

Directed by Grammy winner Mark Romanek — whose past music videos include Jay Z’s “99 Problems,” Fiona Apple’s “Criminal,” “Hurt” by Johnny Cash, “Closer” by Nine Inch Nails and Madonna’s “Bedtime Story” — the video shows the band members performing for an enthusiastic audience in front of a display of video effects.

The band revealed back in January that it was shooting a video in LA for the single, which was released as part of an initiative with AIDS charity (RED), of which lead singer Bono is a co-founder.

“Invisible” was made available for free on iTunes just after it premiered during the Super Bowl, earning $3 million in 36 hours thanks to a dollar-per-download pledge from Bank of America. The song is now available for $1.29 on iTunes, with proceeds still going to the charity.
