U2 Premieres Black-and-White Video for 'Invisible': Watch

Just a week after premiering the song during a high-profile Bank of America ad during the Super Bowl, U2 has dropped a Mark Romanek-directed music video for "Invisible," one of the songs off the band's upcoming studio album.

The video, shot completely in black and white, features the Irish four-piece performing the new tune in front of a captive audience, Bono crooning the song from a hangdown mic while the rest of the band riffs away in front of a screen of multiple video effects.

"Invisible" was shot in a Santa Monica airport hangar over three days last month, the visual clip for the band's partnership with (RED), which helps fight HIV/AIDS in Africa. The band raised over $3 million with the song upon its premiere and subsequent one-day free download period on iTunes after the Super Bowl.

It's the first collaboration between U2 and Romanek, the storied director having worked on Jay Z's "99 Problems," Johnny Cash's "Hurt" and much more in the past.

"Invisible" isn't just making waves with its new video. The song helped U2 make history on the Alternative Songs chart last week, reclaiming the mark for most songs placed on the chart in its history with 39, beating out Pearl Jam. The song debuted at No. 28.
