U2 will release two new songs from the forthcoming Nelson Mandela biopic, Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom on Record Store Day's Black Friday, it has been confirmed.

The two new tracks, titled 'Ordinary Love' and 'Breath', will be released on exclusive 10-inch vinyl on November 29, according to the official Record Store Day website. The release will coincide with the release of the Mandela biopic, which features actor Idris Elba in the lead role. Modern Vinyl reports that only 10,000 copies of the release will be pressed, while the artwork for the single can be seen above.

U2 bassist Adam Clayton recently revealed that the band are aiming to finish a new album by the end of November. They last put out an album in 2009 when they released 'No Line On The Horizon'. It is expected that their new record will appear in 2014 with Clayton confirming that the band are trying to get the songs "absolutely right" prior to Christmas.

"I think it’s a bit of a return to U2 of old, but with the maturity, if you like, of the U2 of the last 10 years. It’s a combination of those two things and it’s a really interesting hybrid," Clayton said.

He added: "We’re in the studio. We’re trying to get these 12 songs absolutely right and get them finished by the end of November, and then we can kind of enjoy Christmas."

Earlier this year U2 were reportedly spotted entering a New York studio with Coldplay's Chris Martin, fuelling speculation that the singer may appear on the band's new album. All four members of the rock group were seen at the Electric Lady Studios in New York in May, where Danger Mouse was reportedly mixing the new material.
