My theory is that it would be great exposure to have "invisible" on a tv advert for RED to run maybe for a couple of months overlapping with say a punchy lead single debuting on Super Bowl halftime and then subsequent radio. The album will have both these songs and give it a better chance for the album to do well.

Someone on here told us they were partnering up with another company to pay for the ad.

U2 obviously can't say ad is for new album. They're trying to throw people off

I was reading the New York Times today and there's an article in the art section which seems to me to make it very clear what will be happening regarding the super bowl and an ad. The article is about Beats and Jimmy Iovine, and a new service that will be coming out called "Beats Music", which is apparently similar to Spotify. It will be launched on January 21st; here's the quotes from the article that struck me as being possible U2 related:

"The marketing campaign will include a major integration with AT&T... and even a Super Bowl ad- a blitz not scene in digital music since the days of Apple's dancing-silhouette iTunes commercials".  They even go on the quote Bono. I'm thinking that the Super Bowl ad will be for Beats Music, feature a U2 song, and since Beats is already involved with (RED), that'll be tied in too. It was weird reading that article today of all days. Perhaps the U2 track will be available on Beats Music, or maybe even the entire album will be available on it right after the ad?

Here's a link to the article. You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

It all makes too much sense. The mention of the Apple ad brought me memories of U2 Vertigo... anyone else read this and/or think of the connection? I mean, it isn't like Jimmy Iovine has any connection to U2... and why did they bother to email "Bono of U2"?

I'm honestly surprised that U2.com made any confirmation to this.

ENTIRE band just on the E channel's Golden Globe Red Carpet arrivals interview w/ Ryan Seacrest. Edge made it a point to say that the album is COMING ALONG and they are actually debuting a new song for the RED Campaign during the Super bowl. Ugh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  :'(

Ordinary Love playing in the background!  ;)

He said that Haiti Mi Amore would be the first thing people heard from Songs of Ascent back in 2010, so i'm not believing until I see.....

I'm thinking this is WAY more further along than Songs of Ascent ever was
