We live in a weird time now where rappers sell albums via cell phones, and humanitarian Bono and his band U2 use a Super Bowl ad for Bank Of America to debut a new song. So much for rock 'n roll being dangerous (though in fairness, they did raise $3 million for charity by making the song available to download in advance for one day, so that's pretty cool). But anyway, Ireland's biggest export is back with a new single "Invisible," and the only reason we're interested has to do with two words: Mark Romanek.

U2 Invisible

We live in a weird time now where rappers sell albums via cell phones, and humanitarian Bono and his band U2 use a Super Bowl ad for Bank Of America to debut a new song. So much for rock 'n roll being dangerous (though in fairness, they did raise $3 million for charity by making the song available to download in advance for one day, so that's pretty cool). But anyway, Ireland's biggest export is back with a new single "Invisible," and the only reason we're interested has to do with two words: Mark Romanek.

The filmmaker has made a rare return to his music video roots to helm this video for the band. The black-and-white video finds Bono singing into a halo and striking poses (which is par for the course these days) as the band plays to an audience in front of a big video screen, with lots of lights everywhere. It's Romanek's first straight-up music video since Coldplay's "Speed Of Sound" in 2005 (though yes, he did helm Jay Z's performance art thingy "Picasso Baby" last year), so give it a spin below.
