The track, which was written for the soundtrack to the forthcoming biopic Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, is their first new song for three years. They previewed it through a trailer for the movie last month.
U2 will release 'Ordinary Love' along on 10-inch vinyl for US Record Store Day's Black Friday event on November 29. The vinyl is limited to 10,000 copies and is backed with a new version of 'Breathe' from the band's 2009 album 'No Line On The Horizon'. The B-side will also feature on the Nelson Mandela biopic, which stars Idris Elba.
Reports recently claimed that U2 would release their new album in April 2014 and an announcement could be made at Super Bowl XLVIII in February with representatives for the band currently negotiating a deal with brands to announce the LP. Bassist Adam Clayton recently confirmed that the group were planning to wrap up recording by the end of this year.
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.
