Bono Calls 'Invisible' a 'Sneak Peek' of New U2 Album

@U2, January 24, 2014
By: Matt McGee


Bono is in Davos today for a variety of appearances at the World Economic Forum -- more on that in a moment.

He did a radio interview from there with Pat Kenny on Ireland's Newstalk FM, and the bit we're most interested in surrounds the new song, "Invisible." When Kenny asked about it, Bono called the song a "sneak peek into the new album" and went on to thank the rest of the band for giving permission to use it for this (RED) fund raising effort on Super Bowl Sunday. Bono didn't exactly say that "Invisible" will be on the album, but his words and tone of voice sure make it sound that way. The audio is available on Newstalk's website, and the conversation about "Invisible" begins at about the 13:00 mark. For what it's worth, today's article about the song also says it'll be from the new album.

There's also a new Brian Burton (Danger Mouse) interview on Rolling Stone's website, in which he mostly sidesteps the U2 album question with this answer:

Yeah, I mean, I can't really discuss it so I can't really quote anything about it but it's still ongoing and that's all I can really say, to be honest.

In Davos, meanwhile, Bono spoke on a WEF panel session today that's available in full on ONE's website. It runs about an hour and, if you don't have time to watch, the Irish Times has this session recap. Lastly, the Independent has a short interview with Bono as he was headed into a dinner appearance where he'd be promoting Ireland to WEF attendees.

UPDATE: @U2 reader Kevin S. mentioned on Twitter that, in this Thursday interview from Davos, Bono specifically says the song is "from" the new U2 album.

UPDATE #2: On AdAge's list of Super Bowl ads, it says that the U2/(RED) commercial will air in between the 1st and 2nd quarters of the Super Bowl.
