Record Store Day
Ordinary Love, written for the new movie Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, is today released in a 10-inch vinyl pressing to mark Record Store Day. The single is also released in Ireland today, in several other countries across Europe - Belgium, Denmark, Holland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden - and in New Zealand. It's out in the UK on Monday. (Participating stores in different countries here.) 

The song  features on the movie soundtrack, released next week and the sleeve artwork for the single features a striking painting of Nelson Mandela by Irish artist and illustrator Oliver Jeffers. Oliver, along with Mac Premo, directed this lyric video for Ordinary Love.

692 70883 640

The band wrote the new song at the invitation of movie producer Harvey Weinstein and the b-side of the 10" features a second track, Breathe (Mandela Version). Check out our new competition in Zootopia.

Let's see where they end up
A similar website as with Wide Awake's release has been put up where folks can register their copy, at ordinary.lv. Curious to see how many were made, and where they will end up.

Excellent news!
Love every time you guys release a new song. Love the lyrics and the music. Competition or not, I happily wait to get hold of it. In my case, I'm more humble and if there were a special download for us subscribers, it would be awesome! Thanks U2!

Finally!
I'm sure that many U2 fans have been waiting for a while to get a new song from U2, just like I have! This song is amazing and I don't get why some people-even U2 fans- don't like it as much as normal U2 songs! I think that this song will be on the new album to be released in April…..hopefully
