U2 recently shared their new short film, which features actor Woody Harrelson as a man being released from prison.

Harrelson and his real life daughter, Zoe, play a father-daughter duo in the short film about a man being released from prison after years of incarceration. ‘Song For Someone’ appears on the band’s 2014 album ‘Songs Of Innocence’.

‘Song For Someone’ is thematically linked to the SundanceTV series Rectify, a show that follows the story of Daniel Holden and his family as they struggle to move forward after Daniel’s release from 19 years on death row.

‘Songs Of Innocence’ was famously released for free via iTunes in September 2014.
