Record Store Day

29 Nov 201320

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.

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.

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

I just purchased two copies of the record and of course, I'm listening to it now! Oh, how I missed my Irish boys!
Got it!!
Picked up my copy in Maine. Limited to one copy per person. Go get one and don't pay stupid eBay prices!
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!
As usual, beautiful y powerful lyrics, a true homage for Madiba from a true amazing, great, talented, one in a billion band. Congratulations!!! Absolutely L O V E I T!!!
Waiting for the competition !
Another masterpiece into my U2 vinyl col
Anxiously waiting for promised copies that should be up for a grab in a promised competition. Definitely need to have a copy in my U2 vinyl collection...
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
Getting My Copy in NH
Just picked up my copy. Awesome song for a larger than life man. Thanks U2!
Love the song can't wait for the new U2a
I'd Like to put it on my U2Vinyl collection indeed ; )))
