Bono's duet with Luciano Pavarotti of "Ave Maria" is now available for the first time commercially. It's part of a new release by Decca Records, Pavarotti: Music From The Motion Picture, the original soundtrack from the Ron Howard-directed documentary Pavarotti, which is set to open in theaters June 7.

Originally recorded live in 2003 at the “Pavarotti & Friends for SOS Iraq” benefit concert in Modena, Italy, the song is available for streaming and as an instant download with digital pre-order of the soundtrack, which will be released June 7, according to a news release. The previously released live recording of "Miss Sarajevo," performed by Bono, The Edge, Brian Eno and Pavarotti, is on the film's soundtrack as well.

Decca/UMe will also release a new 3-CD "best of" collection titled Pavarotti: The Greatest Hits, available for pre-order now, and it includes the studio recording of "Miss Sarajevo."
