The Oscar-nominated band’s new track ‘Invisible’ will be available worldwide as a free download for 24 hours on Sunday, February 2.

And it’s all in the name of charity.

For every download, the Global Fund, via Bono’s charity [RED], will receive a $1 donation from Bank of America. The total donation to the Global Fun will be  dependent on how many people worldwide download the track.

Bono set up [RED] in 2006 with American activist Bobby Shriver with the aim to channel funds to the Global Fund to fights Aids, TB and malaria.

The music video for ‘Invisible’ will be shown during a Super Bowl ad break and will feature on YouTube from 8pm GMT the same day.

Meanwhile, the Irish rockers’ Mandela tribute ‘Ordinary Love’ is in the running for an Oscar at the upcoming awards.

The band have already taken home the gong for Best Original Song at the recent Golden Globe Awards.
