Their new video for "Song For Someone" will be streaming online for just 24 hours. Check it out below.

When U2 dropped their first music videos, you had to keep your eyes on the TV if you wanted to catch them. Unless you were especially VCR-inclined, taking it in whenever MTV decided to show it was your chance to catch Bono's legend in its fleeting, 1980s glory. 

For their latest video, U2 is trying something kinda-sorta along those lines, perhaps a modern day equivalent. They've shared a video for their Songs of Innocence track "Song For Someone" that's streaming on Facebook as a 24-hour exclusive. Check it out below:

The band shared the Matt Mahurin-directed video at approximately 11 a.m. (ET) today (Aug. 27). It features footage of Bono shot earlier this year in Malibu, Cali., interspersed with the typically-epic U2 imagery of barren deserts, daunting silhouettes, and smoky night skies.

This isn't the first time Mahurin has collaborated with U2. The illustrator-photographer worked with them on their 1993 video for "Love Is Blindness."

In July 2015, U2 shared an earlier music video for "Song for Someone," this one a nine-minute short film starring Woody Harrelson.
