Invisible, a new track from U2, will debut in a commercial during the Super Bowl and will be available as a free iTunes download for 24 hours afterward.

The commercial will feature an edited version of the Mark Romanek-directed video for the song, which was produced by Danger Mouse and mixed by Tom Elmhirst.

According to the band’s website, Bank of Americawill donate $1 to (RED) for each download, up to $2 million. The money will go to the Global Fund to Fights AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.

Bono and Bobby Shriver founded (RED) in 2006 “to engage business in the fight against AIDS,” according to the U2 website.

U2 introduced another new song, Ordinary Love, last year in a trailer for the film Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. Ordinary Love is up for an Oscar for best original song.

The band, slated to be Jimmy Fallon’s first musical guest when he takes over The Tonight Show Feb. 17, is expected to announce a spring release for its next album, the group’s first since 2009′s No Line on the Horizon.
