U2 has dropped the emotional music video for "Song for Someone," starring Woody Harrelson as a man getting released from prison and meeting his daughter.

The nine-minute short film premiered Thursday (July 9) on SundanceTV's website following the first episode of Rectify's third season. The video also stars Harrelson's real-life daughter Zoe. Watch below.

Like the Sundance drama, the video for "Song for Someone" -- the third single from U2's latest album, Songs of Innocence -- involves a man leaving prison after what appears to be a long stint.

U2 is currently playing North American arenas through the end of July and will then head to Europe through mid-November.
