U2 to release free song for charity

The Irish rockers will debut their new song, Invisible, in a commercial for the charity set to air during the Super Bowl telecast in America on 2 February.

The track will then be available for free via iTunes, and for every download during that period, Bank of America will donate $1 to (RED) up to a maximum of $2 million, which will benefit the Global Fund To Fight Aids, Tuberculosis And Malaria.

Frontman Bono helped found the charity in 2006. He and his partners have raised more than $241million for the fund, which provides life-saving treatments to millions of people in poor countries.
